Trade Lundqvist to Chicago.


Or to Tampa with JT Miller, for Tampa's first and Vasilevsky. The Rags with MacKinnon or Barkov. As good as Lunqvist is, the former scares me a lot more.

Rangers had no business being in OT today. They got severely outchanced and out played for most of the game. Queen stood on his head all game.
And with Parise, he's way too easy to shut down in the playoffs. I've said it many times, the only series he ever took over and dominated was the Tampa series in 2007
And just to clarify I wish Zach was still here. But he reminds me a lot of Joe Thornton in that he's great in the regular season and then average in the playoffs.

Pretty fascinating how Oates was our PP coach last year and half the forum wanted his head, while this year the Caps have the nr 1 ranked PP in the league. :o

Its official:  Verizon Center is the official House of Horrors for the Blue Shirts.

 

And watching the playoffs in general its amazing seeing the speed of teams against the Rangers (and even against the Devils for that matter).  Outside of Hagland and maybe Nash the Caps are skating circles around the Rangers.  Even in the other series of all teams Boston is now skating free.  What do these teams have in common?  Offensively gifted D-men who can skate and know how and when to pick their spots to jump into the play.

 

Another thing I'm sensing out of the Capitals is Oates has really gotten his guys to mature.  Green isn't a head-case, Ovie is leading and has turned around his defensive game.

I know people misspell players names every once in a while but 'Hagland' = Hagelin? :ninja:

I'd argue the caps have a much more offensively gifted roster than the Devils do (did). That probably helps.

And re: being hypocritical about Parise...hell fvcking yeah, of course I am. There's no room for logic in some aspects of fanhood.

I'm guessing Abdelkader gets suspended at least long enough to potentially not see the ice again these playoffs.

Yeah watching other games and especially playoffs makes it pretty obvious why the devils were not that great. Teams execute so fast, our d really killed us offensively. They always wait an extra second to make a play. They are not a big threat at all from the blueline and they dont rush the puck with speed. Cant wait to get some new guys in.

St Louis vs La is can't miss TV.  I'm dragging today because I staid up to watch the end of that one last night.  Much like the Philly vs Pitt series was an awesome 1st round matchup to watch last year as someone who isn't a fan of either team, this is the one I'm working my schedule around to make sure i can watch.  

 

Regardless of the Game 1 gaffee, Jon Quick is unbelievable.  With his athleticism, he's one of the few goalies I don't think would miss a beat if they ever got the height of the goalie pads back to where they were in the 90's.  Hopefully we can ride him to a gold next winter.   (Side note:) Canada has to be worried that they're going to be lining up whoever their flavor of the week goalie is against the three best goalies in the world who could all single handedly knock them out of the tournament in Quick (USA), Lundqvist (Sweden) and Rinne (Finland).

That's always been their weak point since they started playing the way they do now, fast teams. They play a structured d, but if you're fast enough, you make it hard to stick to the plan, people will come out of position.

The Coliseum looks absolutely electric! Reminds me of being at game 3 versus the Panthers last year before we blew that lead.

I am semi watching the Isles game and doing laundry it was 4-2 Pittsburgh and now I am back and it is 4-4

 

The Isles have offered exciting hockey this season, good management.

 

I want Boston to win but will add the Isles to the list.

 

Who would have thought the Isles over the the Devils? Good job Lou?
