And that's all I've got to say on it. You guys can stick to your plan for mass fanicide. It's pathetic.
Dumb mistakes are not coached, they result from a lack of coaching. And when I say lack of coaching I don't mean BB isn't yapping his mouth. It's about what and how you rehearse in practice. Nothing on this team looks like it is second nature. Just about every team we face looks infinitely more seasoned and precise.

I am with you on this part. But I think you give BB way more credit than I do.

BB said before "Sometime you have to pull the goalie to wake the team up. Its not always the goalies fault. You just need to send a wake up message to the team."

BB should have been sent packing two years ago for this reason.

I think it's time. They just don't seem to be playing for him right now. Fire Boudreau.

We have the worst luck. Running into a hot Ondrej Pavelec. And his 893% SV

So it's Boudreau's fault that Ovechkin keeps missing shots or that Semin keeps taking minor penalties? What about Ward's turnover? Is that Boudreau's fault too?

Boudreau is a coach. He can't go and play the game for the players.

Yup.

All anyone had to do was watch the HBO special and you could see how much more of a professional Dan Bylsma is while BB looks like a screaming, incompetent, clown.

Most of those posters were Redskins fans last year, they're still getting used to the fact that the NHL season has 82 games.

You're wrong.

For some of us, this meltdown was 2 years in the making.

No, we enjoy wins just like any Caps fan. Doesn't mean that even when we win we don't still think we are cursed with that excuse of a coach.

That save percentage is more of a reflection of how ****** our D has been, not so much Pavelec. He's played great

Help. I'm looking for the thread that discussed the power play at the beginning of the season or preseason. It may be merged in with something else.

Dream scenario

Avs finish 1st overall
Caps finish 2nd overall + dump Semin, Schultz and Hamrlik.

Go into next season with additions of Yakupov, Grigorienko, Kuznetsov, Orlov, Holtby, Suter and Kirk Muller behind the bench.
