Washington Capitals 2010-2011 ongoing thread
 
Well the pre-season games have just begun last week w/ a 6-2 win over the Blue Jackets. Should be an exciting season. George and Bruce seam to be real excited with the kids they are bringing up from the Bears.

A few other interesting things such as the reality series on HBO 24/7 going on with the CAPS leading up to the Winter Classic.

Just got tickets to the Caps opening game and I'm really excited. Finally get to see my boys live. Hopefully it's even better then last years opener against the Bruins.

Yes. The KING is in the house,this heavy weight has fast hands and a wicked left jab as thornton found out while looking up at the stars...scratch that I mean CAPS! :spank:

Matt Hendricks is a great pickup as well, solid up front and a legit enforcer! Nice to see us shore up this part of the game BADS just couldn't hang with the big boys. FCK w one of our studs and you have a price to pay, a wakeup call to the NHL.

And the CAPS look great in pre-season. I believe last nights tilt over the blue jackets made it 5 wins and that would be zero losses.

The KING vs. (beats down) thornton....ENJOY

Only worth watching when you have nothing else to do. Otherwise, they are best ignored until April.

Yeah, the Caps are a well oiled machine that develops players and promotes them while signing a few role players in the season. Works great during the regular season but in the offseason it makes them pretty boring to follow. There are some weeks where I might not even check up on the Caps during the offseason. Compare that to the Redskins where theres always something going on. They don't call them the offseason champs for nothing.

Redskins fill my fix for a team that wheels and deals during the offseason while the Caps give me a team that likes to draft and develop talent. Still I wouldn't say they're best ignored until April. More like say October 8th at Phillips Arena, 7:30 EST. Seriously Caps are easily the most exciting team to watch whenever they're playing.

Having a cupcake coach, having one of the more gritless teams in the league is not something to be proud of, and having playoff chokers is not something to be proud of. The lack of quality grinders and veteran leadership on the team is the doing of McPhee, and I will bet that Ovechkin will have a Yzerman like career because of that. The only standard that matters is winning the championship, and the Caps do not have the pieces to go all the way nor will they get the pieces to go all the way as long as McPhee is here.

People said the same thing about the Colts. I already jumped on the bandwagon when the team got hot, and regret not being there before they got good. I'm not jumping off because a young team has struggled in the toughest, most random postseason in all of sports. And above all else their lack of success in the postseason doesn't change the fact that they're an exciting team to watch.

The lack of quality in the trenches and veteran leadership on the team is the doing of Pollian, and I will bet that Manning will have a Marino like career because of that.

Re: Washington Capitals 2010-2011 ongoing thread
 
You do realize that Polian pushed in the rule changes that now allows Manning to carve up defenses like no other?
That's very telling and leads me to conclude that the Colts Superbowl win has as much value as German currency did in WWII.

You do realize that the Stanley Cup Finals are always very nasty and the one who can't handle the smacking is the one who loses? I watched the 2007 on hulu and followed this years as much as I could. Both of the losers were physically done for by the last game of the series.

Not only that, the players had an utterly disgusting attitude after their loss to Montreal. "I don't know" is not a satisfactory answer for all of the playing like shit for extended periods, taking only perimeter shots, or not crashing the net. If players don't hold themselves accountable for anything, then they won't know what to do to improve themselves.

I obviously have no chance in swaying you to believe in the Caps. Agree to disagree.

He'll come around. I really can't wait, remember to sub to my Capitals YouTube channel [url=http://www.youtube.com/WashingtonCapitalsHD]YouTube - WashingtonCapitalsHD's Channel[/url] I try to upload just cool things and obviously badass plays.

Man I can't wait to see King beat the living shit out of people, especially Talbot!

Two videos they showed show far:
