if backs and green dont return and they scratch into the playoffs, i doubt there are changes either. it needs to play out.
I partially agree. This team needs to do more than just make the playoffs. We need to do some damage for the management to be kept. A coaching change mid season is no defense against that either. Why? Because this is the 4th coach that GMGM has brought in that has had exactly 0 NHL coaching experience. 0 as not even assistant coaching on this level. He's forced us to live with it so now he has to die with it.

Pierre Gauthier among those scouts. He was at the Rangers game as well.

Holtby is starting? Knuble sitting? Anything else I need to pull my hair out trying to understand?

Hmm, Holtby is getting the start tonight. This should be interesting.

Game's not even started and NBC taking shots. I'll need to make a quick soundtrack so I can mute the game.

That's a 4.5 million third line player, Mike

...Knuble's sucked.

Vokoun's sick and Neuvirth hasn't been great. It's unlikely Holtby gets up any other time this year when both Neuvirth and Vokoun are healthy. I don't see a problem with it.

Edit: Appreci8 might have a point, too, but I don't see why the Caps would risk giving Holtby away with no promises that Vokoun's coming back next year. But then, it is GMGM.

Is Neuvirth sick? Has the team lost confidence with him in net?

Weird.

If Vogel's proposed lines are what we're going to see tonight Hunter must have lost his damned mind. Halpern as 2C?

That would be completely out of character for GMGM....

This whole idea that Green is the savior for the Caps transition game... to me that just means "our team is so flawed, we can't exit the damn zone without this guy in the lineup", and an open invitation to the other teams, especially in playoffs, to hammer Green mercilessly until he's rendered ineffective.

That just seems like a completely unworkable model.

It's been our model for four years. Just cause it seems dumb, doesn't mean it's not the case. What you describe is exactly what has happened, and exactly when we've struggled. The answer has never been more Hannans. It's been more Widemans.

Mike Green may or may not be the answer for the even-strength transition game, but he is 100% the difference for the PP. In the good BB years, as good as they were on O, the PP was their bread and butter. If Green can get that firing again, it would be huge.

Halpern on the second, Laich on the fourth. What is this I don't even...

Edit: Perhaps Laich still isn't recovered from his knee injury and I totally forgot about it.

I would love to see Laich dealt. Worst contract on the team.
