GDT:Caps at Sabres 7pm MSG, WGR

Recommended Posts

To hell with tanking and lottery odds, regardless of where the totals are at years end, this is an easy team to root for and be encouraged by 

Relentless play everywhere and an incredible performance by Risto to close out the period

Do this 2 out of 3 games over an entire season and you're a bona fide playoff team.

I really think this is a good team. Get another goalie, add more scoring and go. 

 

Id like to go on record as wanting Simmonds back next year

We absolutely need Simmonds back or someone like him.  We need the jam.   It's been lacking for years.

With a 2C added to what we have now, we don't look half bad.

A goalie to share the net and make it competitive with Ullmark. I think a 1A-1B scenario could work.

Agree. But I'd also like for all our DMen to gain 10 pounds (with the exception of Risto).

I'd give him 2x2 but no more.

I want the next Wayne Simmonds. I want the guy who's 24 who's about to have Simmonds-level career years with his playing style.

As to this Wayne. Sure, I'd take him on a 1-year 1.8M deal... vet 4th liner who could go up to 3W as he is right now. But if he gets over 2.2, I can't. I need to be able to find guys to do his role for less than that.

Our issue is we've got a really good 4th line that's overpaid because of KO, so we have to be really careful on duplicating roles with NHL salaries there.

I gave up on the Sabs last week and cancelled cable, but like an ex-gf that is bad for you in all the right ways I keep coming back.  So I'm streaming the Washington feed and their announcers have been bashing the Caps since the end of the first.  They sound so salty Buffalo is taking the play to them.

Yes agreed a bit more girth down low in zone would help.

You sound like my wife.

A real 2C and a big, strong winger that can score.  We need 2 in the top 6 to push the mediocrity down to the 3rd line and to push everyone harder.

I mean... we can all agree Frolik shouldn't have dressed much at all in our sweater this season since acquired...   but these lines look right. And he's just been so undeserving of ice time. It's even more noticeable with Vesey-Lazar-Simmonds as grind line #2.
