    Over 40 years of associating Capitals with "losers/chokers" will create a strong impression that's hard to erase unless you follow the team closely.

    To be fair, one dude on the mains suggested it in the OP, and then 47 responders mocked him soundly for it.

    I get the sentiment though. Despite being defending champs with the whole roster back, in fact actually improved, depth wise, people still generally put the Caps as 5th or 6th in the odds/favorites to win. Its ridiculous but who cares, let them all sleep on the Caps. I still remember EVERYONE outside this board telling us all that TB will crush us, and then VGK will crush us, and so it went.

    At least once a month I consider the possibility I Vanilla Skyed myself coming home from the game 7 loss in 2017.

    Love the Vanilla Sky reference, a very underrated movie.

    I think it is more a Mike Krushelnyski like outlier season when playing with Gretzky and Kurri. Chiasson is a decent NHL bottom 6 player getting more opportunities than he usually would, similar to Krushelnyski that year IMO. Young was barely an NHL player who fluked into a spot next to one of the greatest players the league has ever seen.

    Another example: Chris Clark playing with Ovechkin.

    Chiasson now on pace for 40 goals.

    Edmonton, please sign him for big money x big term.

    It may be Pettersson's trophy to lose right now, but Mikko Koskinen is starting to build himself a darkhorse candidacy for the Calder. Could be one of those fun 30 year old rookie stories

    Toews quietly having a resurgent season. I thought he was done.

    He's too old to be eligible for the trophy. They added an age limit after an older Russian guy whose name I can't remember won it.

    Never liked that rule. Makarov winning the Calder was a unique circumstance that will definitely not be repeated again, elite players like him are not staying in Europe until they're >30 anymore for obvious reasons.

    Sounds like Hakstol is out in Philly and Quenneville will replace him.

    Unless he coming in to play goal I'm not super worried. ;)

    FYI, the Flyers super goalie prospect, Hart, is struggling as much as Samsanov. Goalies take time.

    Has Eichel gotten faster or was his speed always underrated?

    We shouldn't have problems disposing TB or Winnipeg.

    No no no Philly needs to keep Hakstol. Hairplugs Hextall was the only problem.

    TBL matches Caps talent and can win simply with power plays, WPG can just concuss everyone from Caps.

    Well they can surely win on PPs if our PK continues to play like they are...

    Lol with this PK pretty much everyone can handle Caps. But, there is a small chance Caps know that they have problems with this.
