Year 1 - Limp dicking into the playoffs.
Year 2 - In the running for last place overall in the league.
Ya know boyz, we doing well all in all. Got that new content with submediocrity culture.
OMG....I can't believe the Caps didn't give Semin the $120 mil contract! After your assessment, it's clear all things positive in Washington were all due to Semin. How could everyone have missed it?!?!
Man Caps "fans" are hurting these days....
Let's be clear though....all that matters is the Cup, so these fabrications are all beyond irrelevant anyways.
George McPhee....The Teflon GM. 15 years of failure and counting....
6 - Number of playoff series the Capitals have won since George McPhee took over as General Manager in 1997 (which makes him the third-longest-tenured GM in the League), three of which came in McPhee's first season on the job.
Backstrom with 2nd line, Chimera with 1st, Wellman recalled from Hershey, Orlov wearing regular practice jersey (instead of non-contact), Laich says on radio that yesterday was a breakthrough day for his injury, Green expects to play.
Edit: Green and Chimera officially in, Backstrom "confident he'll be ready".
Right, all Semin ever did was have hot streaks or no shows, unlike Troy Brouwer, leader of men with his super consistent production and leadership.
Is there some rule against calling grinders out for floating? Because objectively speaking our meat and potatoes guys show up no more than Semin and none of the John Wayne wannabe types here ever say as much as a ****ing word.
