    As someone else said it looked like Orlov played without a blade on his stick tonight. He's a terrible liability.

    Goal seems to be to keep hustling the fans for as long as possible. Why change that if the customers don't demand more?

    I told bobrouse last season that I was done. then they sucked me back in with Williams and Oshie. Life it too short. Ive wasted decades of springs on this junk and decades of wasted regular seasons watching what never seems to matter.

    they can win 3 straight. if they do, I will watch the next round. but I am only interested in 3rd round hockey now. no more making my schedule around pre 3rd round hockey.

    It only has to last one more game. I think it will hold out for them. Ugh.

    Watching CSN. Although a lot of players are talking about what they're doing well, making excuses - apparently Holtby keeps answering questions wtih "my job is to stop the puck" to every question.

    Good for him. He's pissed. His team is leaving him out to dry (hes let in maybe 1 or 2 bad goals in 10 playoff games). Defense is ****ing up in front of him - and his offense is giving him no support.

    Glad there's someone on the team with some fire and is actually pissed.... as well as he should be.

    If they really think they're playing well that's it. Goodbye. Maybe I'll tune in again next spring.

    Just like I saw the penalty call coming late in the game, I see the Caps winning game 5 and 6...only to let us down in Game 7. You know it's coming.

    Fix his individual performance, obviously.

    The fate thing... I have no interest in discussing it. Basically, if you really believe it, there is no point to watch in the first place, it's absurd.

    How can Trotz even think the way they play works? Hasn't gotten past the 2nd round in 17 years of coaching. Obviously what he does does NOT work.

    They need to basically start over if they're content as an organization with their performance with the exception of, oh, the whole putting the puck in the net thing.

    Trotz is actually the perfect coach for the Caps. Neither can get past the second round. But they can sell seats!!!! F U Ted.

    Letting Wardo go just sucked. I guess Laich's contract really boned us.

    right. just a game. just a show. if I go to a restaurant that serves really nice looking for, but each time it tastes bad, eventually I stop going.

    as a longtime customer of the product looks good but it just tastes bad. its not fun and its supposed to be. if its not what its supposed to be, its my fault after a while for keeping giving them my time and money.

    unless they win three straight here, I wont be buying center ice next season. its the only way I can see these games and I wont spend that money anymore. sorry ted.

    I refuse to buy tickets to the first or second round. Once they prove they can make it out of the second round for a change, I'll be there for the ECF. I want to go to a really meaningful game. Until then, I'll save my money and watch our playoff failures from home.

    Wow, the more I watch that play from Weber the more I hope he has to take a commercial flight back to DC to pick up his things. And the angrier I feel towards Trotz. Did he really believe that Weber was incapable of the same type of gift Schmidt gave the Pens? You want a clutz playing behind the blue line against a fast team? No other defender on this roster makes that play.

    Trotz has been absolutely humiliated. Not just because of his decision making (or often lack thereof), but because of what is a very apparent inability to bring out the best in his team. Defenders making mental mistakes and a discombobulated, limited, unimaginative attack with poor spacing, poor positioning, and generally poor fundamentals.

    Pittsburgh's speed has ZERO to do with our offensive woes because, if anything, we had less success against Philly. Hell we've had trouble against almost every team we faced the past 2 months.

    they had wardo last season and blew a 3 games to 1 lead. before that it was wardo's double minor high sticking penalty in the last 30 seconds of a game that killed them. its not wardo. its not the individual players. its the franchise

    Just curious, what would a fire sale entail? Which players should be available and which should stay in DC?
