This should cover it.
Also this one, where instead of Vegas, we beat the Pheonix Coyotes to win the Cup.
THX kicksavedave. I really appreciate the links.
The first 3 are the same guys lol
Holy hell the sad Coyotes video game what ever will make these next two months last...I'm weird.
Because they're the captain and alternates.
Just posting to show my new avatar. Ted Leonsis doesn't get enough credit for this Cup win. His biggest crime was always simply too much patience with GMGM, but he's done virtually everything first class by this team, these fans and this city, since day 1. Congrats to Mr Ted Leonsis, scratched another item off your 101 list!
Just dropping in to say dang it feels good to be Cup champs and see that we’re returning the majority of our Cup winning team. The potential lineups look awesome and it’s great going into a season for once with well known Cup winning quantities on our team rather than the unknown. We can plug in and play going forward and bring home another Cup in my opinion. I think we’ll make a splash at the trade deadline for a skilled winger to ramp up the offense this go around. Hopefully we can get Orpik back on a small deal.
I expect a bit of a Cup hangover in the months leading up to the new year which I’m ok with. But with a new coach maybe we avoid that. I’m cool with Ovechkin taking a few months to get back into shape
I actually expect Ovie to come to camp in great shape. He knows what it takes now and he’s got a taste of how it feels. He’s gonna want more.
I have always been with Ted because you could really see how much he cared. I got so tired of defending him on the old boards I just gave up.
As to next season, just make the playoffs and see what happens. Win a round or two, lose, really doesn't matter to me as long as they make the playoffs. To be honest, I don't even know if I care about that either.
I just re-watched game five against the Pens, man I loved that game!!
Ted is a great guy and better owner!
Still hasn't sunk in. Probably won't till next season starts.
Ted seems like a decent dude. His patience is a virtue.
That said, I pretty much stopped going to games because the prices are approaching Dan Snyder levels.
Oh well at least Ted doesn't sell expired peanuts.
Just posting to congratulate all the Caps fans for the championship and say hi to all old hf-buddies (like @kicksavedave) here who may remember me. I've been away for about 10 years. It looks like there are good conversations going on, so I might try to visit here more often in the future. Sorry for my rusty English, haven't used it much lately.

Got this in the mail from my friend who is a DC officer. Thought you guys would appreciate it.
That is some swag I WANT!!!! I am retired Baltimore City Police and I just spent ten minutes texting all my po po friends to try and get one.
Kinda random but what ever happened to Hattrick?
Just out of curiosity are people wearing Caps gear, or maybe you have something on your car showing your allegiance, and having people just come up to you and like high five you or give you a smile and nod?
I live in the suburbs of B-More and man am I getting this a lot. Kids birthday party dude decked out in Caps gear gives me the nod, gas station, driving (my car is a Caps billboard). I feel like I'm part of some "fight club" and there are a lot more of us then I ever imagined.
Also if you were driving in Dundalk last Friday and have a VA license plate that says "HOLTBST" that was me who was waving at you like an insane person.
I get randomly congratulated here in Berkeley when wearing a Cup tee. It’s a phenomenon!
It's happened to me pretty consistently, both in San Diego and Philadelphia.
I got congrats from a guy wearing the official championship hat in nowhere NC.
A lady yelled nice hat to me in the Providence, RI airport recently. I was wearing the Cup Champs official hat.
The other day in the grocery store in suburban Baltimore a guy noticed my tattoo and came up and talked to me for about five minutes.
His story was amazing, he and his father had been season tickets for 37 years, finally gave them up last season out of frustration. His father, who got him into the sport way back then passed away a few years back and he said it was beyond horrible that he missed out on this season. I am a sucker for a sad story and by the time he was done I was a wreck. I just went in to grab some milk and bread........
Anyway on a positive note, he did take HIS son to a playoff game and the parade.
This is precisely why we kept our seats even tho they are a fortune and it's a PITA. My baby nieces will grow up in those seats just like me and my sisters did, dammit.
Really feel for the guy.
