Yay, another slapper blows by Sammy!  :)
    Does it matter. We got outplayed very badly in this game. Even the one goal we scored was total fluke.
    We deserve to lose this game. And we are going to.

I used to really like the Bruins.  Now the onlly player I like on their team is Bergeron.   They have become even more filthy that Philthy.

I would be happy to see Sprong back in, instead of Kuzy, even if we'd have to juggle the lines.  That wouldn't be a bad thing anyways.......

We were rubbish tonight..


I think we need to invest in a proper goalie for next season and / or hire a proper goalie coach.

zebras gave the Caps a couple gifts at the start, then let the Bruins get away with murder. Didn't help that the Caps game plan was nonexistent tonight.

Caps are going to need a fire sale in the off season if they think they are going to hire new talent.

I expect the Caps will make a gung ho effort tonight but still lose.  This team is obviously too old, slow and tired to compete.  There's just no jump to their game, no flow and no crispness, all things the Bruins have demonstrated throughout the series.  By the time the OT arrives, or even the third period, most of the Caps look gassed.  I think a major overhaul is in order or this team is going the way of the SJ Sharks who hung on to aging veterans, gave up draft picks and are now screwed for years. 

Just making a quick glance over the roster, there are only a few guys I see who are ones we definitely should hold on to going forward.  Ovie, obviously, isn't going anywhere and he still plays at a pretty high level.  He needs better guys around him.  I'd keep Eller, Dowd, Hathaway, Wilson and Mantha.  That's it among the forwards.  Everybody else is expendable and that includes Backstrom and Kuznetsov.  In fact, they are basically just taking up space at this point.  I'm on the fence with Oshie.  I love the guy but he's looked a bit aged in this series, too. If he's on the team, I'd be fine with it. 

On defense, Orlov has been the best guy out there. much to my surprise.  Dillon, aside from the bonehead play in game 2, hasn't looked bad and he's been physical.  Any of the rest can go and that includes Carlson, maybe especially Carlson.  In goal, I'd keep Samsonov.  He's stood on his head in this series and kept it from being much worse.  He made the one dumb play in Game 3 but has otherwise been stellar.  Criticisms of his overall play make no sense given the domination of Boston otherwise.

You are right, but it is a pipedream to think that Caps management will go for anything close to a rebuild.  They will stick to their guys to the bitter end. 


Setting sentiment aside, I can argue that the best thing this team could do is let Ovi go. For the money he wants, he will be a drag on the team for the next three years.  He definitely has slowed down and will continue to do so.


Signing Backstrom to his deal was a huge mistake.  He has his cup and is now happy to glide around the ice in critical games.  He had a good start to the year, but for his money, he is not going to help the team going forward.


If we had bold (smart) management, they would offer Ovi $9MM/year for 3 years and if he passes, trade him - maybe get a first and a second.  Then try and trade Backstrom, Kuzy and Oshie.  With the Cap savings and a few draft picks, they could quickly rebuild.


Unfortunately, the Caps management will think, they just need to add a guy or two to make one last push while they have Ovi.  They will probably sacrifice draft picks to boot.
