I know most will not agree with me but I'm kinda bummed about Letang. If we play Pitts and loose without Letang, people will laugh at us even harder. If we beat them then there will always be that we didn't have out best D conversation.

There won't be an * next to the Caps on the SC if they win it while beating a PIT team without Letang. Injuries happen.

If Caps still have to to beat the mighty Blackhawks to win it nobody would say ****.
That is except Pitt fans who have delusions of grandeur like I've seldom seen.

If the Caps lose in the second round, people will laugh. If they win, people will say so what.

I don't even think they will laugh anymore as much as they will pity us.

Yes. It would have been really bad if the Pens would have gotten him. Especially now that Letang is out until next season. He could have been an adequate replacement for him.

If the Caps win the Cup and people say "so what, Pittsburgh didn't have Kris Letang" these people are morons.

Them adding 2 defenders at the deadline is looking like a smart move

There's only one class of sub-humans that would be crying that.....Pens fans.

I hope this ousts them in the 1st round.

Hainsey and Streit are half measures, we didn't pay that much for Shattenkirk.

The argument that if the Caps win and Letang is out is extremely stupid. The Penguins stars are all highly injury prone, the probability of one being out during a series is quite high.

Caps could win the Cup against a team that somehow magically reverted back to 4 year olds and I'd still celebrate as hard.

I plan to be drunk the entire week of any title victory. I'll take a staycation the whole week and walk around DC acting a damn fool.

Bummed about Letang from the perspective that he is a good hockey player and really important to the Pens. He must be really depressed.

I just want the Capitals to play one game at a time, 16 wins, I don't care who they play or who's in the lineup.

Everything has to align perfectly for any team to win it all.

Let's Go Caps!!!

p.s. Pens beat the Bolts last season with no Stamkos or Bishop, there is no * by their victory.

Not looking ahead but I still think the Pens are a formidable opponent for the Caps.

Now if we can just find a way to avoid Boston in the first round, we'd be golden.
