Hunter by a landslide.


How many coaches get fired before fans realize the players were and are to blame?

Doubt it. Winning the division would be a tacit admission that they're in the Southeast and, by extension, are the Thrashers. That's forbidden.

Lol at people thinking this is the coaches fault. The coach who was blamed for all our losses a few months ago is now leading his team on a huge tear.

This is absolutely a personnel issue that needs to be corrected. Lucky for us it's heart and not skill that needs to be acquired which will cost us less.

He's working as an advisor with Columbus at the moment.

BenRaby31: In the last 340 minutes of hockey (5 games + 2 periods): #Caps have trailed for 259:57; been tied for 73:30 and played with lead for 6:33

JSportsnet: Capitals haven't scored since the 2nd Period on Saturday. At 130:29 and counting now.

Better yet, let GMGM lace them up as a player/coach before his firing. GMGM vs. Rene Bourque.

Time for a new GM with a different idea of how to build the team. If this team fails to make the playoffs, the day they are eliminated is the day you can GMGM and start the search for a new GM.
No use rooting for something like that. If Ernie Grunfeld can't get fired by Uncle Teddy with all the crap he has pulled over the last 3-4 years then GMGM is safe.

Wow, I really like the idea of Ladd as posted by the previous guy. Give them
colorados first rounder and a prospect like Eakin to get it done. That guys a proven winner and that attitude
would be contagious to a team as skilled as us.

It was both...and still is.

Hunter did not bring in the right style for this team while Bruce failed more often than not when it mattered with his.

What we need is an aggressive north-south system with a coach who can adapt it from a game to game basis. AFTER that you need to bring in some center depth and get a talented player with miles and miles of heart to bleed out to the rest of the team.

How 'bout, if they win, they can rename it the "Godless Frozen Prairie Division"?

Though, I'll admit, I did get a good laugh out of Joe B's exasperated "Look...at...this. Condra, with a breakaway waltz" when Condra stole the puck for a breakaway. I mean, you could hear the complete disbelief in his voice at how awful the Caps are playing.

His comment came not too long after he went off on how the Caps were pulling their second clunker in a row, and only a second after he said "I shake my head when I think the Caps have lost 20 of 30 on the road this year."

Speaking of Patricks, why would the team with no cup keep Dick Patrick around for 30 years? I know he owns some of the team, but organizations fire high ranking people who own shares all the time.

They are my guess to step up, but they have played a lot of games this year. The home stretch is going to help them. It would be a nice story for the NHL and the city of Winnipeg. As a Caps/Jets fan growing up, it sure is strange watching the two teams in same division and fighting for a playoff spot. Then again, this time last year, this was Atlanta. Sad the player's association vetoed the realignment. Another year of the SE division I guess.

Go Caps!

Why can't our defense keep the puck in on the power play?

Yes and no. I can hope for this kind of change as I believe it's what's necessary. What I need to do is remain realistic that this owner won't make the proper changes until the ownership group says something.



at least they broke the shutout streak.
