And I'll say Vokoun comes out to start the third.

Is it possible to trade certain fans?

You mean the coach that won more games in his first 300 games than any other coach in history? That excuse?

I'm thinking it's a time for a change myself but statements like that one are ridiculous and ignorant.

Boudreau is a coach. He can't go and play the game for the players.
Actually yes, yes it is. People that were once great that are no underperforming is a direct statement on management/coaching.

Yes, yes it is BB's fault. It's a huge part of his job to keep them focused and performing.

He's not.

Caps need a new voice.

Fire BB and let GMGM coach for a bit until the determine who the next bench coach is.

Cicadas have a very long life cycle commonly emerging after 13 years or more.

Caps fans that have complaints about the direction of the team don't have to hide for that long.

Just one year.

Every single year.

Like clockwork.

I could point to a number of posts in this very thread suggesting that the "Fire Bruce" crew is enjoying this game as much as they enjoy wins.

And, by the way, I would really have no problem with it if Bruce were fired if this keeps up a couple more games, i just don't think he's THE WORST COACH IN THE HISTORY OF EVER!!!!!!

3rd period should tells us if Bruce has lost this team. Down big, but not completely out. Poised to give up a massive tank job or to show something late and make a game out of it.

Turning to the I'm better than them tactic? I've been following hockey possibly when you were in diapers. I was saying Bruce is a problem in early 08-09. Our play in our own end and inability to mount anything when not running and gunning struck me a long time ago. I've never thought it was a toughness issue, and we have brought 3 new defenders way better than anything we had in 08-09. Nt much difference.

Their zone exits and forecheck are way too casual. They're in survival mode...and arguably have been since last December. They managed to tight their game up defensively last season to survive but regression in that regard this season really puts their possession game back under the microscope. Their execution with the puck is way too soft/sloppy.

You might want to check out the Wikipedia page on how the NHL draft seeing works ...or, in general, quietly follow some of the more well-respected posters to learn a bit about North American professional ice hockey.

Everybody needs to CALM DOWN.
We go into a slump every year.
We'll get out of this, i guarantee it.
Ill bet anyone BB HEAVILY shakes things up for next game. Some of these guys just need a wake up call.

That it means absolutely nothing. Just like Bruce's regular season stats.

You don't think Yakupov and Grigorienko will fall to 29th and 30th? They're Ruuuuussian! Russian factor!

And Varlamov deserves the cup for all the crapping on him people have done. SCFs should still be enough to fire BB. There's only so much not winning a team can take.

You might also want to check out a wiktionary page on the difference between "seeding" and "seeing".

No intermission speech can make up for years of bad practice habits ad general disorganization.

His inability to get anywhere near close to the cup does matter. As does his teams theme of regularly not showing up.
