5-0 NJD win, I hope not but just a hunch. Last time we played them, they ripped us apart, but that was with Parise on the team.

Honestly, he hasn't been bad with Calgary in the games I watched this year. I agree though, glad he wasn't resigned.

NJ scores on it's 2nd shot, Beagle fights someone not named Asham but still gets knocked out cold, Neuvy pulls groin on 3rd shot (resulting in 2nd goal), and I turn off game with 11:46 left in the 1st period. NJ wins 5-1 with Chimera putting in a goal with 4 minuetes left in the 3rd.

In an exciting twist, Oates switches to the home bench after the 2nd intermission. Nobody on either team notices.

Also, I thought Semin was the cancer causing everyone to play like ****. Oops, wrong witch. My bad, carry on.

But don't worry, I'm sure once we kick Ovechkin Semin's way and replace him with Michael Ryder and Dustin Penner everything will be sunshine and lollies, and everyone will play with grit and vigor.
I can not seem to get the Jim Mora "Playoffs" clip to play.

Hopefully I get to watch this one. Maybe I shouldn't want to watch though.

The way this team plays makes me wish we could go back to lock out...

Al May was just on AM 980 and said:
  • He still likes Ovi at RW but they need line rushes, 3 across.
  • Ovi needs to slow down, or his wingers need to speed up to have a plan of attack
  • Ovi can protect the puck and pass at RW more so than LW

If Oates refuses to change anything at all, I am thinking it will take about 10 ugly losses for his systems to eek out a win. Early indications are that he does not address the team, just individuals. That does not bode well for proposing global changes. Like admitting to the team his approach for the PK is not good for us.

Time to start shorting Washington and taking the under. I wil try and bye a win.

I don't like this at all. I agree with Ovechkin slowing down but even I saw that. He would often speed ahead of Nick and he would get confused.

So you are betting against Ovi May and Oates then. Its ok to resist change.

But he and the team has been confused since getting our best cup chance crushed by Montreal.

Ovi at LW has had how many years now to land us a cup? I have seen plenty of rushes up LW this year, and nothing has changed.

Our team has looked horrible with him at LW for more than 3 game stretches, many times.

Fix the PP and you will see a different Ovi.

I don't think anyone here ISN'T betting against Ovi May and Oates at this point haha.

GMGM is throwing **** at the wall and hope it sticks. Oates is doing the same thing.

Hopefully fourth time's a charm. Nicky said he was embarrassed at their efforts so far (paraphrasing here). Maybe feeling desperate and embarrassed will get them clicking. On the other hand, they are learning a new system. They're bound to be all OVERthinking constantly, which is probably why they look so uncoordinated.

But still, I have hope! Let's go Caps!

I wonder how Ovie will be around Kovalchuk. The Devils GDT has loads to say about Ovie and Kovy. Oates too.

I ain't worried about this team anymore. They always pull through when it matters and will make the playoffs. I think all the doom and gloom will be gone in a month! I think this team needs their backs against the wall sometimes to actually get focused and play! Bad, but true

Aye. I'm usually negative as well, so this is a new thing for me.

It wasn't Oates idea to move Ovi to RW, it was Ovi. But Oates agreed to let Ovi try life there. And in Oates defense, has moved Ovi back to LW some, for better or for worse.

But noting has changed, the entire team appears in shambles.

The problem today is bigger than Ovi. Our entire team is lost, and it starts from the net out. G play, D play, and PK work have sucked. Ovi remains our best player. Al May played LW and RW. Brouwer does. Hendricks does. It will not cripple our team.
