The team currently sitting in 8th is "very likely" to miss the playoffs, too. Got it.
Newsflash: Not playing every Russian player all the time doesn't suddenly make the Caps the [insert worst team here]. And if Semin has any real complaints about it... he should score more than 18 goals.
"The team currently sitting in 8th" is struggling to get a win against DET playing 5 rookies. Buffalo sitting in 10th 2 points behind scored 7 goals on TB already. From what I see from WPG and BUF the Caps are very likely to miss the playoffs. The other teams are just more desperate and dedicated. We can return to this conversation after the 82nd game, but don't be to disapointed.
Newsflash: It is Hunter playing Semin every game. Can you please bother him with your assumptions about "russian" players. What the ******* dose that has to do with anything? I was talking about Orlov and from his play I don't see how he should be a healthy scratch.
And if Semin has to score more than 18 goals get a team together already. Pretty much everybody on this team seems to score less than expected.
I basically don't understand how the Caps expect to win something without decent centers.
