    Uhhh, unless Grubhub is hurt, I don't want Holtby to see any ice if we have to play the Pens. That team is his kryptonite.

    If we somehow play Boston, I have no problem with Holtby in net.

    Looks like we are hot instead of cold from cruising the last two months!

    Well it's up to Trotz to judge if hitting the reset button on Holtby worked, but I'd say that based on previous history, Grubi is bound to get tired too. I'm not saying that he should be yanked after a bad goal, but if he allows 5 goals or more in a game, you should consider rotating.

    We have a series to play before facing Pittsburgh, let's worry about the 1st round for now.

    Obviously your issue is with Paulson who I think is average at best, but he’s right on.

    Sure, but i think the Capitals make it easy on the opposing goalies most of the time. They falter and lose their confidence under pressure and that's propably why they don't win in the Playoffs either. They make just about every goalie they face look ridiculously good and i don't think it's a coincidence. Especially as that list includes goalies like Michal Neuvirth.

    Crying over being embarrassed by some Caps posters complaining about Pens bias?

    I am all for starting Gurbi but the same can be said about him playing the Flyers in the first round. I think you still go for it cause he is playing great

    There's a slim chance we see the Pens in the 1st and I firmly believe in riding the hot goalie.

    But, let's embrace the moment....another banner to hang for Ted!!! :rolleyes:

    It'd be a real shame if someone casually waltzed onto the Islanders board and posted that somewhere...a real shame

    Who appointed you?! I don’t remember you arguing against his “ruined development” early on. :)

    I'd like to take credit for starting that Wilson thread. Made purely with the intention of upsetting Islanders and Penguins fans.

    I appointed myself. It is the internet and I shall do as I please! I appointed myself because I was one of few voices saying that Wilson was going to become a good player... hence why I post No Skill Willy frequently.
