Agree on all accounts. How many division titles have the Caps won since DB started coaching the Pens? Pathetic... We're way behind.

Not even just the players. Didn't like any of the coaching tonight as well. Pointless line switching (last game included) not adjusted the 5-man PP unit after the first debacle...


I'm with you both. Bylsma's strategy is so predictable. The Isles can do ONE thing good, and that is grind. So Bylsma switches his lines, and attempts to have a grinding-type game. By doing this, he takes the skill players out of the equation, asking them to hit and win battles along the boards. It played right into the Isles' hands.

If Letang was in there, they probably win both of the past 2 games. But the team cannot win without him, and that is all there is to it.

Whew. The only good news out of this mess is that the Isles are not making the playoffs.
We would never made it through if they were in.

Agreed. No need to change the lines, just tighten up the "D."

Bylsma's ego is bigger than his brain, and his ego told his brain it was time to make changes.

Tonight's game was the product of both.

I love the the ebb and flow of the regular season and the reactions that parallel them. It makes my heart sing.

I just don't see how the Devils can overtake us at this point. They are still 6 points back with only 5 to go. The Devils only have 4 games left, so they can get 8. All we would need to do is win one or tie twice.

I'm just thinking of how Martin let 50 year old Jay Pandolfo force him all the way down the ice and completely manhandle him and strip him of the puck twice.

Just so they don't end up with Boston in round one. They worry me more than any other team in the NHL.

changing the lines had nothing to do with what happened tonight. it was probably always going to be dupuis-sid-kunitz down the stretch. they had to make the change eventually. right after a horrible loss is as good a time as any.

Really Crokin?

2009-2010: finished 2 points behind NJD

2010-2011: Injuries to 87 and 71

2011-2012: Injury city, have taken > 70% of possible points since All Star Break.

Not sure how you can call that disinterest in winning division titles.
