Yeah, almost.  I mean I absolutely despise Shitsurg as any tru Capfan shoud, but Vegas is prolly second on the list for me now.  I think it was just the whole unfairness to their expansion draft.  Not really sure what it is, but I really don't want them to win.  All the Vegas BS hype show prior to games in the Caps SC final didn't help my opinion
I'm not a Vegas (city) guy either.  Never really got the hype or the draw.

Not sure what it is you don't get?    :huh:
Let me explain it to you in very simple terms.....

Big Willy now 3rd on team in total scoring with 12 points behind Ovi (14) and Carly (13).   Our leading scorer has 14 pts in 20 games :-|

Damn....Mantha leading the team in +/- with a +5.  That surprises me.

I don't think I'd put Ovi out with Kuzy on a 5v5 shift again, until Kuzy demonstrates he's anything but a liability on the ice. Open ice, he's fine, good even! Put a body on him? He's probably the worst puck possession guy on the team outside of Ovi. Dude is useless if you don't give him space.


Ovi looks washed too, but what are ya gonna do? He's our goat! Hope he snaps out of it.


Totally agree with the Ovi / Kuzy thing.

I would go furher regarding Ovi on the PP.  I would not double shift him, but put him in the regular rotation unless /untill   :cross:   he gets over his funk.  He's a waste of space there at the moment and unless / untill   :cross:   he starts taking shots, or crashes the net again, he is no threat whatsoever, even as a distraction.  All he's doing is taking ice time, shot attempts and even goals away from other players who actually want to try to score.

EVERY player goes through a slump sooner or later.  All we can do is hope that's all this is and he will rise like a phoenix once again.

Anyone else hate Vegas almost, and I stress almost, as much as Shitsburg?

He really does look bad.  He has 3 non-empty net goals in 20 games.  That's horrid.  After 42 last year, to look like this is pretty shocking.  He may simply have had it, unfortunately.  If he gets 12-15 for the season, he should retire rather than embarrass himself playing another 3 years trying to catch Gretzky.


Sadly, catching Gretzky doesn't seem to be on his list of things to do.  He's caught the "pass first" bug that has afflicted our team for so long, especially on the PP.   :'(    Remember those good old days, not so very long ago, when he used to have two Dmen on him?   Those days are gone.
Previously, when he got hit or checked, they would bounce off him and hit the ice.  A few games ago behind the net, it wasn't even that hard a hit and he crumpled like a dried flower.    :(

If it was an injury, a niggle even, surely he would be sat?  At least not playing every game.

It's got to be a head thing, imho.  Somebody mentioned a short while ago that he wasn't over his dad's death.  Maybe he's got stuf going on at home?


Whatever it is, he's lost that fire in his belly and it's tragic to see.

Philthy comes second for me.  Every time we played them, at least one of our guys got hurt by some sort of cheap shot.   :clown:

Willy wakes up and so does the PP, at least temporarily.  And how about MANtha? :snicker:   Now, if Ovie could just get more than 2 goals a month. :thumbsup: :snicker:


Now if we told you as the season started that a quarter way into the season Mantha and McMike both would have as many goals as Ovi, you'd have thought that was a positive thing, right?
I dont know if Mantha is a fluke or what.  Dude has got wheels and pretty good stick skills, but man o man he's been the most snake-bit or stone-hands guy on the roster for like 3 years running.  Glad to see some go in for him.  He appears to be in the play this year much more than before.
I couldn't tell live, but his goal...didn't realize he carried it WAY out on the backhand and shot that from literally on the edge of the goal line with 1 degree of angle to get it in the net.  Think he might have been a little lucky there.
We will take it.  McMike too.  Now, if we could just solve the Ovi issue.
And way to go Willie.  Dude earns his ice, love to see him score.

I'm really worried about Ovi.    :omg:
