He was SUPPOSED to play his first full season here, until they realized that he was playing like ****. So he spent 90% of his time in Hartford.

Simply put, we need solid performances from everyone. Eminer hasplayed well but will be on a shot leash. Del Zotto needs to play well. I'd venture so far as to say Moore has been far superior to MDZ defensively the last 20 games.

i am not sure 1 goal and 1 assist in 7 games with a minus 2 is "running wild all over us".

If anyone ran wild over us it was Ward. Ribeiro didn't even seem to get or create that many chances. Was completely unimpressed. Did score an empty netter though in OT.

Ribiero was largely ineffective he never adapted and tried too many pretty plays. In a sense the Caps beat themselves especially in a few of the closer games where they added a pass instead of just shooing.

Why are we still talking about Count Chocula and Washington?

Ward was by far their best offensive player during the series.

Um, the refs are the reason the Caps lost. Haven't you heard?!

Eminger better grow some stones this round. At least Bickel threw down.

Well yeah but had the refs not been against them they would have had more chances like that and would have eventually figured it out, maybe?

All these bear fighting images and no one has yet photoshopped a player onto Jaime Lannister from the latest Game of Thrones.

You should all be ashamed. I'd do it, but I have no talent, and thus feel shame.

Ward was by far the most impressive player on the caps.

Bears, pfft. I know, I know Bruins...

But this is the only picture that accurately depicts how I feel, especially about Hank's SO performances. In fact he should use this on his mask.

Check his PPG after being sent down a second time.

You realize it was still his first pro season, right?

Besides the Asham goal, I've rarely seen Kreider use his speed this season.

Kreider has not been that bad this season as you make it out to be. So far, since his last return from Hartford, he has been solid. Defensively, he's still a bit of an issue, but the guy is playing his first full season. Miller is equally bad defensively, yet he gets a pass from many, come judgement day.

I am not saying Kreider deserves top-line minutes, but give the kid a break.
Miller is considered better defensively because he thinks the game much better. He is not perfect out there and does make a lot of mistakes, but I see him at least being able to create offense on his own, even if he fails a lot of the time. Kreider on other hand plays like scared kitten most of the year and doesn't engage in any plays. He is playing like a ........ rookie player. That's why he shouldn't be in the lineup imo.

11 pts in 14 GP since being sent down. Small sample sizes IMO, but encouraging that he was producing at a bit higher rate. March was his only PPG month entire season. Christian Thomas, Marek Hrivik and JT Miller also in first pro seasons, but all 3 have been better AHL players

Well, he did, so maybe give him a chance to do it again?

Look, I don't think Kreider has been great and while that mistake on the Green chance was infuriating, I honestly don't think he's been that bad defensively. It doesn't help that he's playing with Brad Richards and Arron Asham, two players who aren't exactly known for their defensive experience.

Either way, I think he should have been playing 8-10 minutes a game all year pretty much developing him like Anaheim has developed Emerson Etem. They are similar players, but Kreider is bigger and stronger. I think the constant up and down hurt Kreider, to be honest. Either leave him in the minors, or keep him up and play him. None of this mind game ********.

Rangers have won 4 of their last 5

Their defense (aka Lundqvist) has gotten better and better

giving up 4 goals, 4 goals, 1 goal, shut out, shut out. In their last 5

Boston plays a much different style than washington, I feel that we will be able to play our style and excel at it.

Boston has injuries at defense, and our offense likes to play below the goal line which turns the defense around... guys like haglein, zucc and cally are gonna have a field day cycling with the rookie defensemen in their line up

If rangers can score 2-3 goals per game we will win the series IMO

I'm not to scared of Boston , i respect them but just not that scared. I feel the ranger players will step up for that extra GWG.

One thing i feel is gonna be huge in the series is the way the rangers respond when Boston ties up a game late in the third..... Boston did that all series against Toronto. Also did it to us one game this season.

I think Callahan, Richards, Boyle are gonna have a good series

It didnt translate into points, but the Ribeiro line had us pinned in our own zone practically every time they were on the ice. The only reason Ribeiro didn't have more points was, 1) he passed up many scoring chances in favor of over passing, and 2) Lundqvist.
"running wild over us" is actually an accurate description. But, we have the best goalie on the planet right now.

I've always felt that Kreider will be a guy who plays to the level he's at. Won't dominate the AHL and won't dominate the NHL but can be productive. McDonagh didn't dominate the AHL but then came up to the NHL and was a beast. I feel Kreider can be the same way. If he uses his speed, like on that Asham goal, he can definitely back defenses up and open up the ice. The main thing with him is playing with confidence and consistency.


On another note, does anyone else feel like we don't have a 4th line? Even used in 4th line minutes, the Kreider-Richards-Asham line has the potential to be a productive and useful line. Asham is really the only 4th liner on the roster. Pyatt-Boyle-Dorsett is a great 3rd/checking line, if anything that is the 3a and Richards line is 3b. Making that Richards line Clowe-Richards-Kreider or Clowe-Richards Asham makes it more of a 3rd line than anything else.

Zucc-Brassgod-Nash
Hags-Stepan-Cally
Pyatt-Boyle-Dorsett
Kreider/Clowe-Richards-Asham/Clowe

That's a deep 4 lines right there.
