We'll be fine against boston IMO. I know they are intimidating but Carlyle is smart to get things fixed.

Boston is a loss, don't even bother playing. I'd be utterly shocked if we pulled off a win or even kept the score reasonable.

That is kind of how I feel about the Boston game (pre-pre game day thread). But then I recall we have a new coach and a new focus on defense and think...well maybe it won't be a blowout at least lol.

As for the Caps game, well we should be able to win, history says we likely won't but again a new coach and system. Joey Crabb - yup he will likely be very motivated to score in this game.

Well said.

We have different view on how to run this team, and Carlyle I am sure from his previous encounter took some tips on what was wrong with that team. However this year, we are a new leaf, pun intended? So it will be good to see what we can do with a defensive leaf team.

Attaboy. Let's fax in the paperwork to the NHL head office to officially forfeit.

Gards is down with the Marlies.

However everything you stated is likely the case, mainly the top six is going to be shuffled depending on Mac`s return or not. IMO Kadri's line should still be the same.

Lance Hornby ‏@sunhornby
Ovechkin's 42 points in 27 games vs. the Leafs are his most against a Northeast Division team. Held pointless just five times vs. Toronto.

The way the Caps have been playing, this might be his sixth time.

This is a must win...this team needs to learn to put away teams that are already down.

We did it against Buffalo, now it's time to do it against Washington.

Who knows, Phaneuf has a good way to shut him down. Hopefully it happens.

I am more worried about how we will get a home win than a win against the caps lol.

Yea, weird set up... You'd think AO would be with Backstrom, and then Ribeiro would be with Wolski and maybe Fehr?

There are a few question marks on that team though... goaltending... secondary scoring (primary scoring if AO isn't going), legitimate #1 D, etc.
