So when does the bandwagon start to lose some members? Maybe ticket prices will go down a little.

I've heard that Wall's knee isn't in good shape based off of the type of treatment he was receiving. They really only have 2-3 good young players (none of which is elite & 2 play guard) despite being terrible for almost 5 years.

Dude whatever he sucks and blaming Ovechkin shows how blind people are.

Watch the goal again anyone blaming Ovechkin.

Then look at #4. Ovechkin was covering his guy like he should of, it would of been a wide open net for him or Ladd. Holtby has to ****ing have that.

I would really like to have Ted answer why GMGM is still here. Yes he has built a talented team but then put no experience coaches to lead them. This team needs a proven ring wearing coach.

Hold out for sub $1 tickets on stub hub and people on Craigslist saying pay me if you really want to.

Beal is turning it around and if Wall can stay healthy, that is going to be an elite backcourt in 2-3 years. They need a scoring SF and they'll have a very solid foundation to build off of. The current team with a healthy Wall would make the playoffs.

Didn't see a lot of improvement over Saturday, but a new HC needs more than a week of training camp and 1 and 1/3 games to put his stamp on things.

Actually, that goal went of Carlson's skate on the cross crease pass. Where did I say anything about Ovie? I'm calling the system and coaches out because this is like watching the Bears all over again when Oates and Callie where there.

Yeah that's not ovis fault. He is in a good position to intercept the pass to 4.

This is on backstrom.

I agree, it's a little too early to judge Oates, but it's just the frustration of the past 4 years starting to leak through. Thinking of what could have been..

I still want to believe this team can get their collective heads out of their ***** and do some real damage this year. Everyone is healthy, we're going back to a more offensive approach, and we don't have Wideman/Schultz (for now)..yeah it's reason to be excited, but these first 4 periods have been abysmal. I'm willing to put up with some growing pains, I just want to vent.

The problem is that he took about 4 strides that entire PK.

Only thing I can see to shake things up is to trade 1 of the 3 Amigos (OV, Nicky and Green). But which one? Nicky is a keeper, OV is a mystery and Green is Green.

Why is it that our 9.5 million dollar guy can't even get a shot on goal 1 on 1 because he is so predictable, but our 700k guy can atleast get a shot along with the rest of our team.

I was pointing out that you were wrong that Holtby knocked in the first one. Once again, never said anything about Ovie. Picture shows my point of the system sucking that a player can waltz right down the slot. Lets not act like that was a weak shot from the blue line either. That is a uncontested one timer from the mid slot when Holtby was probably hedging on the shot coming from the right wing given the Jets PP set up.

This is a major reason why I don't think that Ted wants a new GM. Does he want to be told how his master plan has failed and how he needs to trade one or two of these guys? Does he want to be asked if these guys are so special then where is your Cup, your trip to the Finals, or even a trip to the ECF?
