Re: Stanley Caps

Yeah. The Pens are very talented. Some how people will look at this as the Caps "choking" again if they lose this series.

As noted, there is a difference between "choking" and running into the wrong team at the wrong time. The Caps have undoubtedly choked in the past. Epically at times. The Pens are tough and taking them to six would not be a choke.

WITH THAT SAID: To shake the monkey off their back and get rid of the label, they need to be the team that other teams "run in to" or find a way to beat those teams.

The Pens are tough and playing well. You want to be champs at the end of it all? Then you gotta beat the tough teams that are playing well and do it consistently after the season ends. I really want the Caps to pull this out. I know they can, just don't know if they will.

Joe, I admire your ability to be rational in a time like this, but if I had any hair left on top of my head to pull out it would be pulled out right now. Every year it's like clockwork, why should this year be any different?

Re: Stanley Caps

Team has a guy in the argument for greatest goal scorer of all time yet they can't buy a goal. And for some reason they have a magical ability to turn the opposing goalie into a brick wall.

Re: Stanley Caps

joe said it right. the caps , winners of the presidents cup, are chokers. you can make any excuse you like, but the results are always the same. im a flyers fan. with that being said, i love me some ovie. but something happens to him come playoff time. cant nail it down, but something changes. and its not for the good

Re: Stanley Caps

I guess I fail to see the "choking" aspect as part of their history. I can see the argument in 2008 when they lost to the Flyers in the first round 3 games to 4 and got swept by the lightening in 2011 in the second round, but the Caps have always played solid 7 game series in the playoffs. In terms of Ovies performance his playoff stats due drop from the regular season 78 pts in 82 games and scoring a goal in only 46% of games, compared to 966 pts in 839 games with a goal in 62% of games but I think the more disconcerting aspect is the absence of other play makers stepping up. You know the playoff game is going to clamp down on Ovie so they need to take better quality shots. I am sick of hearing John Walton say the Caps are getting plenty of shots but they are taking crappy shots.

Re: Stanley Caps

Does anyone know what players from this year's team will be lost this offseason? I thought I heard Williams wouldn't be back, but not sure.

Right now, the latest I have heard is that most of the team will stay in tact.

Of course that could easily change in the off season.
