Its the collective bunch of players that is the problem. No doubt. But Oates' coaching style, IMO, isn't a fit for these guys either. So we either get rid of the core or we have a coach like Hunter who can get these guys to battle hard every damn second.

Really, we're the Dallas Cowboys of the NHL:

- We have a team that gets picked to do well at the beginning of every season.

- We have our stars who rack up the stats in the regular season but fail to show up in games we need them the most (Romo, DWare)

- We have a GM who is just as meddlesome as Jerrah and perhaps just as clueless

I'm sure we'll see some pics of our superstar with his girlfriend in Cabo two days from now.

With the new division format? I'm not sure they're playoff material next year, not with the same old approach.

Oates looked like a rookie coach

Not really surprising, I suppose. But I had higher expectations for him.

Its hard to know how much the refs screwed with the players minds

Having that much cap tied up in one player is always going to amplify any other issues, I imagine. Their honest chances hinge on how well he ages.

We're a little over 2 minutes before McGuire has a Toharski moment.

Must win tonight. This depressing playoffs nonsense must stop now.
Make that 11, and 9.

I haven't double-checked the numbers in this article. I don't want to.

I think I'll need a psychiatrist after this one. Gonna get a head-start and borrow a Xanax from my girlfriend right now I think.

Is it better than being a Caps fan in the 70s, when for the first 8 years or whatever it was we couldn't even get into the playoffs, despite the fact that almost every team, at least for some of those years, got in? Like in at least a couple of those first 8 years, 16 teams got in and 5 teams didn't or something ridiculous like that. It was kind of hard, but kind of funny too. Just beating Montreal or Boston for the first time in franchise history felt incredibly great.

This feels worse right now than those completely bad teams. This tendency to choke away 2-game leads feels not right. Why did we wind up with the team that does THAT? It's just, I dunno, gross.

Glad we got a Presidents' Trophy. I guess I can be happy for the fact that I'm not one of these people that can't derive entertainment value out of the regular season, because there have been a few great regular season teams in DC that were very entertaining. Probably I die before the Caps get a Cup though.

Agree with the sentiments about overreacting after Montreal. What a team we had that year. What a team. Don't remember a more entertaining team since, y'know, like, the Gretsky Oilers probably, or the Lemieux Penguins I guess.

Useless. Useless.

Remember, the difference this season is that we have a real 2nd line to complement the 1st. Aaaand that's exactly what happened.

Cheering?

These fans are just as clueless as the idiots running things.

The game today was called very evenly. They refs let both teams play. We came out hitting. Hard. At least for today's game it didn't look like the refs really screwed with the players' minds.

Its not the refs.

Its this team. As a whole. GM, Coaches, Players. All of 'em.
