So, as awful as this performance is. The Devils are a reason to be encouraged. They were abysmal last season -- or was it 2 seasons ago? I'm losing track. Anyway, they retooled around their same core and came back strong quickly. Lou is a great GM. If we could get one, things could get better for this team fairly fast.
I find I'm strangely sanguine about this. So the Caps are a crappy hockey team. Much easier to watch them lose when I don't expect them to be a winning club.
Yeah, something like that..
I think I might go back to just watching the highlights, though. There's just nothing especially interesting to expect with the Caps at this point.
I was watching the Caps' role players that period. Hard to believe Laich and Ward are pulling 7.5m between them. That's another "Suter", lol. Maybe that can be a new game -- how many combinations of expendable players can you come up with to equal a potential "Suter".
Hows that? Are you talking about the freak keep 7 feet in the air?
He gave Clarkson too much time to do what he wanted with the puck. Didn't have him tied up or off balance. Watching how he was moving his stick, he seemed to be overthinking it. Can't let him get that pass off cleanly though.
