-No one is on the same page, offensively or defensively. But more so evident defensively

-I thought it would take the team around 10 games to learn the system and get things down but I did not expect them to look this lost. They look like they have never played hockey before

-The stars need to step up big time.

Easily the worst team (If you can call them that?) in the league so far.

Leafs fan, watching the game on TSN. It's odd, I expected the Capitals to be a much stronger club than they've shown so far. Holtby certainly isn't his playoff self, but isn't to blame for the game thus far. The Jets are approaching 35 shots already. The top line has been woeful, incredibly soft by Backstrom in front of the net. Aren't he and Ovechkin -3 tonight? It's certainly disappointing to see what's happened to Ovechkin the last couple of years. Used to be one of my favourite players in the league. Simply doesn't look like he cares anymore.

Ovechkin is an embarrassment as the face of this franchise.

So they are better off with Ovechkin in the box for the first 5 minutes of the 3rd period?

Well, at least if they do turn out to be as lottery bad as they look, we won't have to sit through a full season of it before it pays off.

At this point, yes. He hasn't done much in 40 minutes. Whats another 5 in the 3rd?

The same muppet will be left in charge to fix another mess he's built though. That is the main problem.

Comcast really is hard hitting aren't they? I can't wait to find out what Backstrom's favorite color and food is.

Uhh he has an assist and should of had a goal if it wasn't for Hendricks being an idiot and sticking his leg out on a pass meant for Ovechkin.

Johansson: Still a turnover machine. I mean, it's just mind-boggling how often he coughs up the puck. At least he's not making blind drop passes this year? And thank goodness, he's already been demoted.

I'd say he's also soft along the boards, but he's always a step behind the play--so the puck is already gone by the time he gets to the boards (which he usually does while falling down).

Meanwhile, Loltby is looking like the AHL goalie he is. I don't care how many goals you can blame on screens, deflections, or whatever. When you've given up 10 goals in five periods, something is not right with your game.

Without semin our offense has nothing once Ovie does his disappearing act.

Wouldn't worry about that. Buster and Timmy have picked the Nats as the top team in the NL. The jinx has been placed.

Unless one likes watching a team implode, this is probably the least entertaining team in the league right now.
