Rooting against the Rangers Saturday night

First of all I would love for this team to blow the Caps out 7-1 (or 1-0 or whatever), turn things around and go back on another winning streak. Unfortunately I'll believe that when I see it, but I do think they have a chance to beat the Caps Saturday night.

The Caps sound like they've been attacked by the flu (good thing we recovered from THAT!) and will be very shorthanded Saturday. Also, they're playing their 4th game in 5 nights, something I thought the NHLPA didn't allow, but it's an advantage for us.

That said, I would prefer for the losing to continue, because even if we're able to beat a half-AHL Cap team I don't see us beating the Devils on Tuesday, Forsberg will probably have another four assist night against us Thursday, we have to go to Montreal next Saturday, then we have the Islanders again. All games which are likely to be losses.

Surely a 12 game losing streak would get SOMEBODY'S attention so SOMETHING would be done...that is, if anybody in management is even paying attention. A victory against a depleted Caps team in between all those losses would give people the false impression that this mix of players, coaches and management can actually win something against a real team.

A loss to the Caps is our only hope.

Hopefully the Rangers lose by a score of 12-1......do you think that will get their attention. If Alex the Gr8 nets 6 goals and the Rangers drop 8 in a row...sadly, The management would probably tell themselves its just a bad slump, and continue to think (dream) that a stanley cup is within reach....lets be honest the Cup is not coming to the Garden anytime soon. I believe that when the Cup was brought to the Garden on Messier night, that the Rangers were cursed and will never win another Stanley Cup....ever!!!!11

dave, i think you're right, theres no way we can beat nj, phi, mont and the isles. just no way right now.

I hope they lose to, I just don't give a ****. I used to get really pissed off when they'd lose, but now I just don't care, because they are ****.

I'll always be a ranger fan, but I'm rooting for the Hawks now, they have some life.

This team has so many basic problems, fundamental issues, that it's unreasonable to assume the losing streak will end anytime soon. So, I wouldn't mind seeing the losing streak continue too, but only if it means changes. Sadly, I think any changes we see this season are just gonna be stop-gap measures. Mark my words, we are done for this year. Last year was a fluke. Shanny is gonna get the first flight outa here come season end & never look back.

I hope we get totally mauled, with Kolzig getting a shutout. What's the longest time without a goal record?

GOOO CAPS!!!

The Caps had 7 d-men tonight, not 8. Clymer has been a forward again since around Halloween.

The Caps have been ravaged by injuries and illness the last few weeks.

Injured/sick right now:
D:
Muir (Broken foot)
Erskine (Broken foot)
Eminger (sick)

F:
Bradley (broken hand)
Pettinger (sick)
Sutherby (sick)

G
Johnson (sick)

so it's been more Herhsey players than Caps players the last few weeks.

Renney will start Weekes tomorrow even though Lundqvist has been our only good player over the past 2 losses.....we will come out and score 5 goals after scoring 0 in the past 2 only to have a a shakey Weekes give up 7 to continue the losing streak.

There's no way I am ever rooting against the Rangers even if it means better things in the long run. I've rooted for them every single game since I was 3 years old and that isn't stopping just because of a putrid losing streak.

Lets go Rangers.

I couldn't ever really root against them, though this season has become a farce and I don't care if we keep losing. If it accelerates a house cleaning, so be it.

Washington is atrocious because they are suffering from injury.

Even if they break the losing streak, this team has so many problems that it probably won't make a difference in the long run. Any team that uses a forecheck at this point would dominate them.

And just because they have a lot of AHL players doesn't mean the caps aren't dangerous. All those players are looking to prove themselves in hopes of gaining a more permanent spot. It be nice if more of the Rangers current roster would do the same.

Rangers could be 0-82-0 and I would still cheer them on. Nothing would stop me from cheering on the team I love most, I would never cheer against them.

No, of course you're not. Is it because there's no one on your own boards that you have to come over here where's there's actually more than 6 people?

Now now now. I respect that Devil's fan. He doesn't come on our boards and bust about how much the Rangers blow or how bad there doing. So let him be.

See, that's the difference right there. Glen Hanlon has the Caps working hard every night, playing with grit and passion and determination. They play their system according to their level of talent- and everyone knows their role. You could say they are overachieving right now, but that's what responsible leadership will get you.

Are Ovechkin and Semin and Kolzig arguably better than Jags/Shanny/Henrik? Probably not, but if I were a betting man, I'd put my money on the Caps in the playoffs before us the way things are going.
