Hunter played a defensive system based on the talent he had to work with. Now we are actually seeing why Hunter had to play that system because the talent on this team SUCKS. I think they actually skated hard, maybe 2 shifts a player this game, so their conditioning is improving, lol.
Kuz and Forsberg are probably really debating right about now, about coming to N.A, and playing for the Caps.
I used to expect goals from OV, now I just hope to see a shot on net.
Kinda harsh, you have to look at the people around him, i mean he's got Mojo, brouwer and Chimera as potential linemates and they draw 0 attention and instead he gets blanketed. Crosby and Malkin get flanked by Neal, Kunitz, Dupuis and Kennedy. Big big difference.
I mean when you think about it do you actually think this team is going to win the Cup this year? Not correct personnel and new coaching.
We'll be better once we got Forsberg and re-sign our key guys. Get rid of the fail and bring in some new players.
Hockey is played entirely different than it is supposed to be in Washington. You see other teams getting gritty goals or doing amazing passing plays or sniping it. In Washington, it's a "let's sit back and wait until their is an opening"
It is actually exciting watching a team like the Chicago Blackhawks for example.
This season is not over by any means but i'd rather miss the playoffs than get a 1st round exit.
