    This is a plausible route as well. The bottom line is that he needs multiple goals games. Unfortunately, he hasn’t had much luck with empty netters this season, and he often plays a decoy on PP by moving away from the office. So, it’s going to be tougher for him to break 30 this time, but, of course, we still believe in him.

    Running a rookie and barely sophomore goalie neither of whom is top 30 save % is a little generous for "set". And by a little I mean we're probably gonna get Halak'd even if the skaters are firing on all cylinders

    Actually just realized we should probably hold Wilson out until the playoffs if everyone else is healthy and the team is rolling the way it is. f*** risking a yearlong suspension because of this stupid league. The more time we can put between them the better.

    Wow!

    That was highly well structured win over highly well structured Islanders team.

    How they come out of pressure from their own end. NICE! Couple little moves and out from the center -> to the offence.

    Ovie goal was just sexy. Standing 90 seconds still on the corner and when they let him stand there for five seconds two steps down the point and BOOM.

    Sammy kept us in for the first and team took over. Is there anything we can doom and gloom today? Feels weird.

    Nothing is set with the goalies. That said, if the goalies run to the finish as they are playing now, then I would expect MacLellan to stand pat. Samsonov has his early soft run of games already. His average will be damaged by that all season but MacLellan wont be using those early games as a determiner. Vanecek has better numbers than Rask right now.

    The combination of winning and the team being more and more fun to watch as the season goes on is exciting.

    Great game from Sammy, saved the game in the 1st, team took over the rest of the way, great last 40

    And since when do the Caps EVER get a PPG in the 1st minute of a period? Aisles D were asleep at the wheel, they had no clue 19 slipped behind, lol

    When we're good, we're good. Look as good as any team out there
    Great run, I guess next game will be the trap game now (unless we win that one)

    When Kuzy Cares, he's as good a player as there is
    Simple
    Ain't no fancy stats
    it's plain to see when he's on his game
    (and why many of us complain about him when he can't be bothered to be all-in)

    Yep. I was a big proponent of the “every other game” with these 2. Worked great in Hershey, so it can work great here.

    Its not bold to predict an inconsistent player like Kuzy will start producing again.

    Are you sure? I know I remember them losing to the Pens a few times, even when they outscored them.

    It is when the prevailing "wisdom" was that he's a bum, doesn't care and needs to be shipped out immediately.

    Anything said to the contrary, including fairly detailed statistical evidence, was shouted down by a mob acting like a pack of screeching howler monkeys. :D

    For the record, I love you guys. ;)

    I guess he’s getting lucky now? He was unlucky before I was told. ;)


    Whatever it is, just produce and help your team more in doing so. This version is very palatable.

    I see.

    I just avoid the mob of howler monkeys... although it annoyed me when they were going after Ovie earlier this year. I mean how many times does he have to teach them?!?!?

    If only that were true....I bet if you took count, like 4 people said they were done with him, and some more were open to a good hockey trade.

    I hate to see the false narrative that fans wanting more out of an inconsistent player are somehow unreasonable or hating on a player.

    Lol. Almost every time the Caps fall behind in a game, there is a legendary meltdown. This guy sucks! Trade this bum! Trade everyone! Fire the coach! Etc.

    This place is certifiably insane. It's literally a madhouse. Which is why I love it. :naughty:

    you also have to read the room....3-5 reactionary (and sometimes not wrong) posters isn’t “this place”....

    I can’t recall the last “legendary meltdown” on the Caps board honestly....after a playoff series loss maybe? Dunno...
