If the Caps powerplay is poor, it's on Hanlon and his assistants. The talent is there this year.

Well...yeah...when you're in house.

We're at home.

The replays during the game action....not good for viewers on this thing.

I'm not being a hater. That's just fact. Last year it was "the PowerPlay is bad because we have no one to dish to Ovechkin/Semin and no one to run the point". Insert Poti. Insert Nylander. Insert Backstrom. And if it is still bad, it's either players not performing well (which is a possibility as its still the preseason) or a function of the coach not setting them in the right strategy.

If you run the in-house feed with free internet viewers in mind, then you should be fired. It's not for us. We're along for the ride.

I can't see why people can't get that through their heads - we're watching the jumbotron feed. For free. On-line. Doesn't seem like that bad a deal.

Agreed. If they play like individuals on the PP, the coaches should accept the blame.

well, what do you expect when Zubrus 2.0 is centering the 1st line?

seriously:

Ovechkin - Nylander - Kozlov/Fleischmann
Semin - Backstrom - Kozlov/Fleischmann

exactly. good on them for making it available. but for the sake of the in-house folks, they've got to get better music.

If only it was so cut and dry.

"Insert Backstrom"...I love it...a guy who has never played an NHL regular season game.

The caps 19th in PP goals last season. Closer to average than bad. It SHOULD improve with the better PP pointman yes.

And for the record, "the PowerPlay is bad because we have no one to dish to Ovechkin/Semin and no one to run the point" is all fan-speak. You never heard a SINGLE coach or team official make that statement.

I'm personally just sick of people trying to make excuses to fire Hanlon when they haven't played a SINGLE REGULAR SEASON GAME.

I'm leaning towards agreeing with you, but I'm willing to see some real action before declaring it a failure.

you gotta think kozlov is perfect insurance for backstrom developing as a center. he's a right wing, and everyone knows that. but he can fit at center in a pinch until backstrom proves he's ready. once he is, seamless transition.
