All four lines were forechecking and backchecking. Caps especially defense, clogging the passing and shooting lanes with their sticks.

Heh, Carlson just made a point of saying 'I don't have any bad blood with him [Semin]' in the postgame. Better start having a freakout about new lockeroom discord.

Anyway. Good win, system looking good, tankists hang your heads in shame.

This fan base has splintered into so many factions over the last few years.

-the pro/anti Boudreau-ists
-pro/anti Seminists
-Mike Green Fan boys/ Haters (Hater for life)

I think all the McPhee loyalists are gone though.

Eh, I still don't know that they could find a better choice than him. Odds say they find someone worse.

Count me as a McPhee loyalist. Because every anti-McPhee swears MoJo is a bust.

Tempting to not sign/trade good LD, right?
i dont think so. that creates one pair of two puck movers. thats a bad idea. one of kundratek and orlov becomes a spare.

but...lets go with the one game. its better for your cause. maybe both of them will start laying eggs from here out to make you look better. maybe not, though. be prepared to eat crow. the holtby we have seen in his career looks a lot more like the goalie that has played the last several games than the one that started the season.

i think the last player on the capitals that needs to be motivated is john erskine. after working as hard and waiting as long as he has waited for a chance to play(reference 85's complaints about ice time and role) there is no chance erskine takes a two year contract for granted. he wants to play. the only way he plays is by just about playing over his head.

I'll admit it, I've been a windsock on GMGM and I will continue to be. Yeah he can be frustrating but then I look at some of the players on the ice for the Caps last night such as Kundratek (that's working out to be a steal), Carlson another great move by GMGM, giving Fehr a second shot and even Troy Brouwer, at the end of the day, I'll continue to straddle the fan fence and have blue balls on the GMGM issue.

Oates coaching performance of late hasn't hurt either.

As far as GMGM goes, I'm probably in txpd's camp of "what is him and what is Ted?" etc. I think GMGM is a smart guy, but a stubborn and risk-averse one. I think he's fluent enough in CYA policies that he hasn't been executing a plan without having Ted and co. on board. So I would legitimately be interested in seeing what he would do were there a push from above to be bolder and/or shake things up.

I wouldn't feel bad were he replaced, by any means, except for the lingering dread that they'd end up replacing him with someone worse. Because its the Caps.

Tracy kills me. I don't mind Forslund at all. I remember some SC playoff games last year when on NHL Network or maybe NBC sports where he didn't have Tracy with him.

I"m anti-McPhee, but I don't believe MoJo is a bust. I do feel he was thrown into the NHL too fast and needs to get his confidence back. Honestly, the only Cap I can really dislike is Schultz. Green gets annoying with his injuries, but those happen in sports.

Same here. Though I don't really dislike Schultz, the guy just needs to go.

Watching the Canes/Pens game last night made it impossible to not think of how incredibly lucky the Caps got facing the Canes without 4 of the guys who played last night, Gleason, McBain, Skinner, and Brent.

Pens just didn't have Brouwer leading them is all.

Because that one game against Carolina meant so much. Who cares?

What?

Just saying the Caps got lucky with the timing of those 4 guys coming back from injuries. Brent wasn't a huge thing but the other 3 play big roles on that team.
