Have phone under table at work dinner. Have to pay attention and no pretend conversation is my own play-by-play and the guy across from me is not mike Lange.

"The entire third period was nothing but this. Boring to watch."


That's really the issue.  A few years ago it was "no lead is safe."  and we're back to get up a goal, and just sit on it.  literally. sit on a guy.  he can't score that way.

From Molinari:  "That doesn’t mean the negative reaction would be enough to jeopardize the sellout streak at Consol Energy Center, however."


There was a post awhile back that is was a fake.  Any details on that?

I don't get it.  Dan's clearly on death row.  maybe they're just trolling the Caps.

Japers rinks (caps blog) comment section is pretty interesting on our situation.  one of them realized "if they fire Dan and Shero, they'll probably get whoever we wanted"

Watch them both end up in DC.  I'll swing by Kettler (caps practice facility) to say hi.

Dr. Egon Spengler: Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light.

Dr Ray Stantz: Total protonic reversal.


I'd bet not, just because it would be impossible for someone that famous to keep it quiet.

I dozed off in a meeting and had a nightmare where Shero was replaced with GMGM from DC

@Con_Soul11  and that was from Game 2?  which was a win.

@PenGeno @iacas @dvo  yes.  the younger player will learn from mistakes.  scuds knows what to do, it's that he's not capable of doing it anymore.

@dvo  There's no downside.  invest in a younger player with a potential upside.  scuds just looked done.  that OT winner in game one was his play in a nutshell.  weak clear attempt leads to high quality chance.  and repeat.  


it's like a LB in football. there's not a gradual decline.  it's just "awesome" and the next day "done."

"Things like the sellout streak being a sham, the Penguins’ budget out of whack because of poor playoff sales, and much more"


What?  Granted, I'm in DC and not following the day-to-day, but what?

I can remember almost every shift of those game 7 wins*.  Particularly that Caps win.  The Detroit one I was pacing from Talbot's first until the final buzzer.  


*I was lower after the Cap game 6 OT loss and I have been at any point in this series.  But that's an OT loss for you.
