Why anyone wants to break up the only thing on this team that's working is beyond me. Keep Ribeiro and Ward together until it dries up.

3. Bench SCHULTZ!!!

Lines i would like to see (if Laich is back):

Ovechkin - Backstrom - Wolski
Ward - Perreault - Ribeiro
Chimera - Johansson - Brouwer
Hendricks - Laich - Crabb

Schultz in pressbox (rest of D wont matter)
Don't be so hard on Schultzie - he had to fix his cap before he got moving again on that last goal. Shoulda called a timeout.

Caps win tonight in a shootout. We get to see Ribeiro, Hendricks and Wolski.

One of Poti or Hamrlik is traded no later than Monday (speculation). Seriously, something has to give because the Caps need to make space for Laich and baby Orlov is back practicing in Hershey I believe so he'll be in Wash. soon too.

For centuries people have wondered, "what happens when an unstoppable farce meets an immotivatable object?"

I am steamed to not have gotten the Toronto GDT.

I mean...

"Dodgeball Superstars vs Dodgeball Fat Kids"

"Bruce Boudreau Played Here vs. Bruce Boudreau Coached Here"

"Matt Bradley's buddy vs. Jack Johnson's Dirtbag"

"Tennis Bride vs. Sloppy Seconds"

"'Our Goal Scorer Sucks more than yours!' vs 'No, Our's does!'


And all we got was a reference to the Marlies?! We deserved to lose that game.

I am convinced coaches are told to play/prioritize Sarge to aid in his seemingly never ending development. It explains why George likes noob coaches. While Hunter scratched him for a month, come playoff time, he was in there. Minus 12 and all. I did see Sarge last night have to hustle to a loose puck. I guess that was good enough to keep him in the lineup. The guy can do no wrong.

One of my first games attended...

http://dropyourgloves.com/Fights/Gam...193#Fight74193

For the record Holt was tripped by Sunds dangerously into the boards on an icing, and this all happened on a 2nd icing right afterwards. Tiger got his gross for crosschecking Holt in the back of the head. Sundstrom did not defend himself, it was quite the sight. All 3 officials were laying on top of Holt at one point, who displayed an impressive feat of strength as he lifted them off of the ice a few times.

I sat in the aluminum section 101 with the folks wearing the duct taped boots. You know who you are.

I don't see us winning tonight. I hope this slump would stop, don't want to tank yet but just don't see win coming.

The Caps are shooting more than last year, so far. And the difference betwween this year and, say, 08-09 is only about 3-4 shots per game.

Teams as a whole are averaging about 1 more blocked shot per game.


The problems with Ovie and this team are not in the number of shots taken or blocked.
Ummm....

I hate to do this to you... I realize you worked hard on that to impress me, and you did.

BUT... did you ever stop to consider that other teams might be blocking our shots?

My reference was to our lack of offence .

Good work, though.

Goon,

Just reread my post, and I can see why you thought that. But the origin of that was Randy lamenting on certain Caps no longer taking shots, even ones that missed. My comment was aimed at a reason as to why they don't: more shots are being blocked, and the coaches have picked up on that (heck, the coaches are the ones implementing it across the league), and told our guys to cool it.

Appreciate your post though, I didn't know where we stood.

Our Future

The Caps/Rags was just on replay, and I gotta say, I'm not looking forward to facing either of these teams, especially the Pens, on Sunday. They looked pretty organized, and fast... as the Rags found out on a breakaway.

Mo good news for GMGM and Ted.

On the bright side, if you recall, I said this offseason was **** on numerous occasions and hoped the lockout would last indefinitely.
