Shots attempted includes shots blocked and missed as well as shots on goal.

Head to head competition: Two games (home and away still remain). Washington at home has shut out the Panthers both times 3-0 and 4-0, while have lost to the Panthers in Florida 5-4 and 4-2, goal totals being 13-9 in favor of the Capitals.

Measuring the quality of a team purely by the points it has accrued can be a flawed gauge.
So qualification for the playoffs isn't based on quality? Or maybe only when it's a tie does the NHL look at the quality of a team.

The whole SE sucks a turd. Not sure why this is even debatable. We're both the best of the ugly. Caps may be more hitable if their zit cream takes affect.

It was a battle of goalies, and Vokoun is definitely the better. Congrats on the win.
The difference being that Caps fans are embarrassed by our team's results and you seem rather pleased.

Did you think the Habs were better than the Cats the year you guys got screwed by their shootout wins (or whatever it ended up being)?

Not asking if you thought either were good, but did you think the Habs were better?

Who mentioned playoffs?

I responded to your post "Seeing as Washington has around the same amount of points as Florida. I am led to believe that Washington is that great either. Actually, since Florida has a game in hand, Washington is not as good as a team that isn't that great". Doing my best to decipher, you were comparing the Panthers and the Capitals and said that they were about the same based on the points. I addressed other indicators that would suggest that's an incorrect premise on your part and that your use of strictly points to measure the quality of a team versus another team was flawed. If you are going to compare the teams, head to head play is your best gauge.

Keep in mind though that we're playing right now without 2 of our best 4 players.
