Well one rejected Leiweke and the other rejected Dean and Leiweke.

And they only have one day of rest until the next game. They are going to be dead tired if they get to the SCF, but I think the Devils will put a stop to them.

3 of the 4 captains left are American. Pretty neat. Ryan Callahan is a treat to watch play. He gives it his all night in and night out. What a leader.

Happy to see Brian Boyle continue on. He's found a good role on that team.

I hope hockey fans can finally realize and admit the Capitals individual offensive stats were grossly inflated in prior years. It's a lot tougher to rack up points when you're expected to give effort on the other 50% of the ice as well. Kudos to them for realizing the error in their ways and adapting. They did well this year and should do better as they continue to grow as an all-around team. Time to move Semin as well.

They need to employ a new negotiation tactic in their next pursuit of a top free agent. I suggest intimidation.

History backs you up. Teams who have played 14 games in the first two rounds have never won the 3rd round. Bodes well for the Devils.

I think overall the Devils are the better team but not by a lot. The amount of games NY has played will hurt them.

That was one of the worst game 7's I've seen in a long time. The Caps played like they didn't want it at all. The Rangers were sliding all over the ice. Both looked tired, like after an overtime period.

Kovalchuk did not reject the Kings. He wanted to come here. DL rejected him. After he spent his time in LA visiting, DL didn't want him. Got this from a source that has connections.
