2nd Round - Capitals vs Rangers

Recommended Posts

I didn't get to see the game, as for some reason DirecTV decided yesterday was a terrific day to limit my access to NBCS. Even though it went 114 minutes and we lost, something tells me I really missed out.

You missed a whale of a game, although I fell asleep after regulation myself, so I missed about half of it as well. Tough break to lose a game like that. If there's one thing about this years Caps is they've been resilient, countless times in the regular season and in the playoffs they've bounced back and they are going to have to do it again. Don't want to lose game 4 and go down 3-1. Stinks that I'm going to be on the road on Saturday and won't be able to watch/listen at all, ugh!

Man I'm dragging ass today after staying up to watch that. The Caps were just completely out of gas by the end of the game. The Rangers literally looked like they had a man advantage for a large part of the 3rd OT. Hopefully they can bounce back and win game 4 (I'll be in NYC during that game wearing my Ovie jersey proudly).

Great game with so many chances for each side to end it earlier. I stayed up to watch too; luckily, I'm in the central time zone.

P.S. I love Matt Hendricks.

Completely OT, but I always under-estimate how far "west" the Southeast truly is. Arkansas is further west than Chicago! Crazy stuff.

Ok, back to your regularly scheduled programming.

Me too, and I had some important appointments today at the office. I am hurting.

Great game last night, other than the loss thing. Looked like they were trying to skate thru quick sand during the third OT, but the effort certainly was there. Hopefully with the extra day off, the boys will come out Saturday with even a little more hop.

I watched the game from regulation and the 3 OTs. Heartbreaking when Mr. Glass himself, Marion Gaborik, was able to solve Holtby, but it was an instant classic type of game regardless of the outcome. Both goalies had ice water in their veins. Hopefully the Caps come out strong on Saturday and even the series before returning to New York for game five.

I watched most of the two OT's and felt the feeling that the Rags would pull it out so went to bed after two OT's. Both teams deserved it and every game can go this way from here on out. We had multiple opportunities and didn't get the breaks but they can say the same. Two hustling teams, two super goaltenders and some of the best hockey end to end I have seen. I can still remember the days of Scott Stevens, Dale Hunter, Bengt Gustaffson et al - and this is the way we wanted them to play back then. I am very proud of this team! No goons, clean play and great playoff hockey.

I miss the east coast sometimes, but then I remember that football starts at noon here and primetime tv ends at 10 pm. How do you guys get any sleep?

The schedule has been incredibly annoying... here they play a 12:30 game tomorrow, and the O's game is at 1. Ugh.

Anyway, go get 'em boys. Gotta have this one tomorrow.

Lucky for you... while I have MLB.TV, the stupid ass blackout rules prevent me from watching the O's on my laptop.

Rumors and News

    • Cobb will need to rebuild his value. Trumbo is unlike. Valencia is likely valuable as a platoon player and pinch hitter. Beckham could be used as a utility player by someone. Your right Givens is a valuable chip.
    • After having the best record in baseball for 5 years. I agree big changes need to be made, all the way to the top. However, I think there is a lot to the narrative that Angelos created a toxic environment where DD could not do his job. I would not arbitrarily fire everyone for one bad year and maybe you do get rid of them all. Hard to know without being on the inside but if DD is saying all the right things and making all the right plays I would be OK with keeping him.
    • If they resign Adam, to me it is a sign nothing in management has changed.  Adam has been great but he is not what this team needs going forward.  He is an aging free swinging poor defensive outfielder in decline earning a lot of money.  Moving him to right field blocks guys who should be playing and he is just going to get worse all around for lots of money that should be spent elsewhere.  Resigning him would not be a good baseball business decision aiding a youth movement centered on a competitive window starting 2020 that should put an emphasis on OBP for one thing.  If they resign him, it would be an emotional decision and one I do not think DD would consider, but Buck would...  What happens with Adam going forward may be a litmus test that reflects if things are changing and who is really in control.
    • Trumbo and Cobb ate untradable.  A contender isn't going to want Valencia or Beckham.  Also you forgot Givens. 
    • What is ownership for $1000 Alex!
    • I see where you’re going here. I’m picking up what you’re putting down. its that damn, no good, good for nothing Oriole Bird! He’s well past his prime and needs to be released!  😁
    • I can see both sides of this.  I think Adam would be a great leader for the rebuilding Birds, and it would be cool if he stayed in our uniform for his entire career. (I know about Seattle but that doesn’t really count.). But I also get that there’s not really much point in signing him for a team that won’t compete again for a few years.   That said, I don’t imagine there is much return for Adam in a trade, so do we keep him and make him a qualifying offer after the season, knowing full well he may accept it?
