I was hoping for the same

Tampa at ES passes harder than we do on the PP. Green and Nick playing catch barely makes the PKers move.

Same old Caps.

Lack of defensive composure and low overall hockey IQ.

Backstrom was MIA except for when he was visibly sucking. At least Ribs looks good.
Mojo downright horrific on ice...

You know when your GM's prized free agent pickup was a miniature version of Brian Pothier (Hillen), you're in for a long strike shortened season...

Only after he buys Schultz out in the summer in order to renegotiate his contract to an 8 year one with an NMC.

You can see that the guys are not yet in game shape. It will get better.

Also Washington has an entirely new coaching staff while Tampa hasn't.

I'm not worried.

Does any one else really hate the Tampa Bay forward waiting for the pass on the left blue line? So annoying.

Watching the afternoon games, especially Pitt/Phil what Crombeen just did to Ovechkin was an interference call. He skated into Ovechkin's lane and bumped him well away from the puck.

What was that Oates was talking about with regards to his coaching philosophy of controlling territory on the ice?

Which territory exactly were we working on controlling tonight?

Well that was awful.

If Lindback isn't generous this one's considerably more one-sided.

Think of it this way, if GMGM made quality FA pickups...maybe Joel Ward wouldn't have played in this game.

OOHOHHOHOOO positive spin, boom!

That didn't take long for the Debbie downers to open their mouths.

One game.

Neuvirth should start the next one.

Sadly Ward just scored 33% of the goals he's likely to score all year.

Yea, it's like those guys who said this team would be **** were proven wrong...

For ****s sake, half our dumpster dives didn't even suit up.

To be fair, it's almost February and the Capitals still haven't won ONE game.

The penalty box.

How much longer will we have to watch Mojo waste a roster spot on this team before his trade value is trash?

The positive thing: I had a hunch and left Holtby on the bench in my fantasy league.

See you guys.


PS: Had Brouwer played anywhere lately? Was useless IMHO.
