I didnt even bring up Bruce i was just disapointed in their level of play. Little defensive of your boy.

I expect backlash from these comments.

simple. i read this thread and it reads like the caps both suck and are losing. much of the previous 3 threads read the same way. if anyone pushes back against it, they have their heads in the sand, no nothing about hockey, are on the team payroll or have seen enough losing that their standards have been destroyed,

People take this board rather personally. Also there seems to be a lack of reading comprehension. Saying the team is playing bad =/= (does not equal) this is a bad team. Theres a slight nuance there that some people just dont get.

But hey we could just re-post how great this team is on every thread.

If our expectations were going to be lowered by failure, it would have happened well before Bruce and not when the team is up 2-1 and 3-0.

I do not like letting teams hang around like this. It's one thing to do this against a team that is a cup favorite but the Sens are a team in transition. They are giving the effort and we are not.

saying the team is playing bad? come on. 4 games in the game threads have been heavily negative. this thread is page after page of negative. bring up that the team hasnt lost a game and are ahead in this one and your reading comprehension or excectations are collapsing.

No connection between this team playing poorly with a lead last game and this game? Not worthy of discussion? Can't point that out?

Games are tense? Tension doesnt bring out the best in people? Uncomfortable leads are uncomfortable. Makes the posts more negative. (See any other sports related board).

If say you wanted this team to go 4-0 you might be a little say... angry right now.

This is true, and you cant say this is the most talented team we ever had. But we have never had the best player in the league before. And this team has to be close to the top when it comes to talent. And each year we lose to a team with less talent that is better coached. And nothing changes. A few players in and out with the same problems year after year.

4-0 and they aren't playing well which certainly allows BB to keep drilling consistency and accountability into their heads.

boring game other than cowan trying to body up on ovi. ha. nice try, kid.

lot of tears in here over a game 9 days into the regular season...which they won. no points in the standings for style, gents, nor will this game matter in 6 months from now. some of you have a pretty embarrassing threshold for patience considering it's supposed to be all about the postseason/nothing else matters. which i more or less agree with.
