Frak!

Kuzy is unlikely to return after leaving from that hit he took

WTF is that error message about no posts in this topic for 120 days?


don’t know, maybe a moderator should look into that

Holts looked good in the 3rd, kept the team within 2

Need to check em' for the coronavirus? Holts played good enough to get the next start. Team needs more tenacity and less aw shucks. No hitting, outworked, out of position, etc, etc.. Same  :clown: :poop: , different day.

Do you think maybe now the team will stop saying "It's not time to panic!"

Doubt it. They really can't afford to panic. Literally. Needs some leadership and coaching to get their head right. See how the west coast swing goes..

What I mean is they can't act like everything is OK.  We have serious problems, and they are mental.

A few losses back, before the Philly loss, were surely good examples of low energy/attitude, team play, with Rierden, then having a 4 day GAP, following a WEAK victory against the bottom feeder LA Kings!


We then hear not even a mouse peep, about anything being worked on in practice, during this 4 day gap! Then they go to Philly and have their most pathetic, overall game of the season, as if all the players simply saw the prior “break”, during the week, as a VACAY!!!
It’s certainly seems that’s how they behaved, given their WORST performance of the year!


THEN....They have one of those “closed” locker room meetings, Rierden supposedly “gets pissed”, and if all rings true....these boys should have been coming out like GANG BUSTERS, against the Islanders tonight!!  And NOT in a way that would have required us to “look closely”, in order to see a renewed effort!
Rather, it should have been OBVIOUS, and OVERWHELMING, PERIOD!!!..... BUT NO!!!




[size=78%]We certainly KNOW the Caps are capable of it! And we’ve witnessed almost unbelievable types, of 180° turnarounds, many times with this team, over the past 5 years!!  AND YET, Tonite.....??[/size]


A truly honest assessment would SADLY indicate, NO REAL, observable change, overall!!
Puck watching, not moving the legs, being ok with GLIDING, rather than churning and SKATING, More unnecessary, or ill timed stretch passes, getting outhustled, just to name a few issues!!
Want more!! That’s easy!!...


How about attempting near meaningless, short spurts of effort, that are quickly quenched out, because we have a few players, whose immature, and undisciplined brains, “just can’t believe”, we didn’t score,  and although they may understand as a professional player, that strong effort, needs to be SUSTAINED for longer than just one shift,  they fail to self motivate, and like spoiled little brats, give the “self-ok”, to back off the pedal a bit!  NOW...The BIG question!!


WHERE THE HELL IS RIERDEN?? WHAT HAS HE BEEN DOING, over the course of this pathetic slide??
And we’re supposed to be HAPPY, because our coaching staff, SUPPOSEDLY working on issues, since BEFORE CHRISTMAS, has come up with WHAT???.....Moving Oshie over to Ovi’s office spot, for ONE MEASLY GOAL, from an otherwise completely ANEMIC Power Play!!!


Sure am glad you really got “pissed” Mr. Rierden! You, and that pair of avocado-sized testicles, just fill that locker room with the combined smell of testosterone and machismo!! You fuckin BULLDOG, you!!


Lastly, for right now, anyway, pity our GOALIES!!

One can only hope Reirdon doesn't sound like a eunuch when he addresses the team. The way he addresses the press is less than inspiring

Well, to be fair, Kuzy's +/- was a big fat zero, while the first line collectively was a -10.  That's who was on the ice when the Isles were scoring at even strength.


And it's happened that way a few times in recent weeks.  It appears there are times when Ovie/Backstrom/Wilson are either unmotivated or are somehow repeatedly being taken advantage of despite their motivation level.  I am especially concerned about Ovechkin, whose workload has been heavy all year as he keeps trying to spit in the eye of Father Time.  Today's NHL increasingly relies on team offense out of all players on the ice, which means that, conversely, team defense has to involve all players on the ice.  We all glamorize Ovie's chase to 700 goals and beyond, and his charge to another 50-goal season.  It may be coming at a significant team cost.

Well LETS JUST GIVE KUZY THE FUCKIN SELKE THEN!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣
