Also somewhat disgusting - over 25% of NJs wins are in the shootout - 12 out of 45. They have the same number of 'real' wins as TB does. Interesting to see how they do with no shootout in the playoffs.
Caps actually match up relatively well with both the Rangers and the Bruins. Assuming they clinch the 8th seed, they would likely face those two teams in the first two rounds. It could be particularly interesting, given the match up of the Pens/PHL and NJ/FLA on the other side.
I'm not really sure what to make of NJ at all, sometimes when I watch them everything's clicking beautifully for them other times they have nothing no goaltending no scoring no defense.
Who knows what they'll be in the playoffs. In my mind there's only two teams I'm certain the Caps would have very very little of a chance against Pitt and Philly. The rest all have holes or consistency problems
Edit: Wouldn't mind having Asham on this team but it's hard to deny he's a piece of **** so much for the code, earlier in the year the Beagle incident and today punches Schenn in the face while he's being held by another player. Way to respect the code jackass
