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.

@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."

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.

@pawsbyandmeowkin  I have to disagree.  It's lazy writing to select a topic such as "fan involvement", which is incredibly subjective.* opine on it for a few paragraphs and draw some sort of conclusion based on nothing, really.  He could have at least talked to somebody, anybody, about the atmosphere at the games and used it to support his "this is no fun" conclusion.  he also switched from "the fans suck" to "the players aren't having fun."  


* when i'm at a game, i don't say a thing, cause i'm too focused, particularly in the playoffs.    the intensity is overwhelming for me.  so i'm a bad fan i guess because instead of cheering, there's a silent fist pump or nod for a good play .. .like clearing the zone on the PK.

Wow.  Listening to the radio in the car for the 2nd period.  The ole '29er made that non-call on Sutter sound like it was a travesty.  Said he pitch-forked him, IIRC.  Expect better than that.

Awesome.  It's that playoffs feeling, where you think you have to puke, but you're excited about it.  comes this time every year.  unless you're a Caps fan.  then it's more infrequent an doesn't last that long.

Anyway. I've kept the team at arms distance since the strike year. That just killed me.

But about a year ago I started following your blog. And this summer it's my first stop. And then I started listening to the games. Thanks for the great work
