unfortunately i woke up this morning with 'Jiri Tlusty' on a loop in my thoughts.
i take this as a bad omen. especially since he and #28 seem to have a good thing going in Carolina. certainly have been enough NHL Network highlights of the two of them.
and it's with a heavy heart that i voice agreement, i think we need all 4 points out of these next two games, or else it's down the crapper. not that GMGM will ever admit it and flip the switch to Seller mode. still. caps need a serious hot streak or they'll be golfing early.
tonight i am rooting for sabres, ice kittens, and leafs in their respective games. and as long as i'm making wish list. ovie, for the love of god, please stake us to 2-0 lead tonite with pair of PP goals.
This might be the night Semin gets some revenge...the team is faltering...I can see it happening.
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.
