At this rate All Star games are the only thing Reirden will be winning
At this rate, the only All-Star he'll see is on TV on NBC.

There are only three ways that happen:
1. Ovie does not get any trophies, (sans injuries)
2. They get eliminated from plaiyoff contention early
3. Ovie is wants him out

Well we're on track for 1 and 2. And if they both happen 3 I guess would follow...

Firing Reirden won't put an end to his head/coaching career, it will set it back which may be a good thing. Bruce Casidey is doing well in Boston and after he was canned here no one would've thought he had what it takes

I'm perfectly fine with Reirden ruining some other team not named the Capitals.

Great article over at RMNB about Rierden sitting Jaskin because of a goal "he let it" at the end of a PK.

Pretty f'n tired of Rierden selectively picking out 3rd and 4th liners for mistakes and yet nothing happens to Kempny, Orlov, Niskanen, or any of the forwards or centers when they mess up.

This team has problems, but Jaskin is far from the glowing example of one and yet this is the second time he isolated him for discipline.  He has a stick penalty a couple of days ago and he was benched the rest of the period while Kuzy did the same dumbass penalty and he was "benched" yet still sent out for the PP.
Yes, Conno scored two goals, but he also had a ridiculously stupid stick penalty in our offensive zone with 3 seconds left in the game which led the winning OT PP goal.

It takes no balls to call out a 4th liner.  Take a sweater away from Orlov of Niskanen or Kuzy if you really want to show your fair and serious.

Let's be honest.. Aint no coach in the league taking sweaters from top 6/4 players.. They may get demoted or miss some shifts, but scratched? I think sitting Kuz for the rest of the period the other night was more than I've seen from a Caps coach, ever.. I wish he'd scratch Kempny.. Did he get his bell rung lately? Dude been making some odd choices, then the 2 mystery blown tires.. Connolly would be sitting as well, after that retarded slash penalty. (His 2nd of the game btw)

So here's a somewhat interesting tidbit which I'm sure will have no meaning and lead to absolutely nothing.


Joel Quenneville's played his last season as an NHL player for...
the Washington Capitals.  I did not know that.






Here's a thought....How about he ends his NHL coaching career with the same club he ended his playing days with.....a coaching career that turns out to be a highly productive, winning, illustrious coaching career that culminates with 3 Stanley Cup rings in his first 5 years of coaching this team  :uh-huh: :clap:
(i didn't want to seem greedy with 5 rings in 7 years) ;)

I hear ‘ya Mick, but he needs to stop the BS about being responsible and disciplining players when all you’re doing is taking a sweater from a hard working 4th liner.

Im with ya' too.. Just saying, top players get demoted, bottom players get scratched.. Just the way the discipline is handed out it seems.

There's got to be more to this, because if this is the only reason Jaskin is scratched then Rierdon isn't long for this town...

It is what it is. I guess it isn't always the best idea to totally scratch your best players, but at the very least demotions should be doled out. It's just that with TR, his bottom 6 scratch to top 6 demotion ratio is insane. Bottom 6 guys who aren't quite deserving get scratched for days on end, top 6 guys who consistently screw up don't get a slap on the wrist.

Definitely doesn't seem like a rookie head coach (who I could bully) is the answer.. Need someone like May if you're going the rookie coach route with a bunch of metro sexual veterans.  :-\

The biggest problem with Reirdon right now is the way he talks when giving interviews. He sounds lost, and has zero authority in his voice.

TR would've had to throughly run this team into the ground for management to fire their guy. Winning the division just earned TR at least 2 more seasons.

Agreed, and I don't see how anyone can justify firing a head coach when the team finishes 1st in the division.  Not saying TR is responsible for that, but 1st place is certainly no grounds for firing.


I just would like to see this team with an actual HOF coach like Joel.  I really like Babcock too.


I'm not a TR hater, but we'll see what the playoffs bring
