Why are you guys scared of Washington? They suck bad.
Even with them sucking bad they almost beat us last game and that was without Mike Green and Backstrom. Not sure if Backstrom will return in time for the playoffs though. I don't want to see Washington in the first round, they're a very real threat. They already beat us the last 2 times we played them in the playoffs.
They still have way more skill than we do. I do not want to draw them in a 1 vs 8 matchup; no how, no way!
We're 1st in the East and the Caps are fighting for the 8th spot. Sure on the paper they may have a bit more skill, but we have the better goalie, defense, all-around offense, and chemistry. Caps aren't beating us this season if we draw them.
