Comparing him to them? Backstrom was better and is better right now.

Right now we'd play NYI in the first round. I want NOTHING to do with that matchup.

I haven't heard Oates's name in the Adams convo, but he should be.

I don't know. Backstrom has had one season what was significantly better than any season either of those two have had but take that out and they all have very similar numbers overall. Plus those two have been more productive in the playoffs, though Kopitar has a thinner CV, and they both have rings.

Magic number is now 4. One win, one regulation loss for Winnipeg and we clinch the division!

you know what i am saying. the caps never lose because they get a bad matchup. they lose because they choke or they suck. they dont win not because the matchups and injuries fall in their favor.

but every season come playoffs the whining starts over not wanting to play who they are going to play.

We're getting Ottawa or the Islanders at this point.

I wouldn't mind playing the panthers

Seriously though, I'd rather play the Islanders than Ottawa. The Islanders have been doing a lot better lately, but their defense is still weak compared to Ottawa. Not to mention that Craig Anderson has been playing ridiculously well. A really strong goalie can change the outcome of a playoffs series.

I personally think it's time to revive the dormant Isles-Caps rivalry.

Yeah I agree Bananas I think the Isles would be a cool matchup for nostalgia reasons. Plus I would have to say their goalie is the worst out of all the playoff teams.

I remember licking my chops couple years ago at prospect of TBL in 2nd round, and we **** the bed. And then last year, i thought we were doomed v. BOS, and we pulled it out. I have given up trying to figure the angles.

I'm very surprised that Holtby isn't getting any attention on the main board, he has been phenomenal for us, very solid. Under the radar.
