  1. No team has repeated since the Wings. Please, if there is a god, do not let the Pens be the next team to do it.
  2. If they beat the caps, what team has the best chance of stopping the Pens?
  3. Caps will win. Best thing that happened to them was going down 2-1 to the Maple Leafs. Capitals were playing very well last three games and Anderson kept the games close. Also, Caps couldn't handle the Pens speed last time they met in the playoffs, but Toronto was the perfect opponent to prepare them for this.
  4. Agreed
  5. Leafs have the greatest coach in NHL history.
  6. Caps will destroy them
  7. I am certainly in the extreme minority here, but I stand by my view that blaming Blashill is knee-jerk (and clouded by him trying to replace Babcock - big shoes to fill). I would give him another year or two.
  8. Wow, what a thread.
  9. A lot of teams in this league would kill for the success we've had.
  10. That's all well and good, and I don't necessarily disagree. But just because a GM is bad at somethings or made mistakes in the past doesn't mean that everything he does is awful and needs to be treated with pitchforks coming out. Vanek deal was best the market would give him, and personally I'd rather have the 3rd rounder than lose Vanek for nothing at the end of this season.
  11. B+ Very happy with the overall returns we got but...would've liked to see an effort to move Green as I think his value is higher this year especially if we held back salary.
  12. On its face, I agree the values look way off. But keep in mind that Smith is young and likely to extend. Vanek is much older and likely to test free agency. Finally, add in the fact that Vanek has a long history of completely disappearing in the playoffs, and you can begin to see the full picture here.
  13. Guess I am a Panthers fan now....hope they make the playoffs!
  14. The irrationality and double standards that fans on this forum have blows my mind. To believe that Holland, who has GM'ed for 20 years, doesn't know how to get decent returns for his assets by letting the market speak is absurd. It would be incompetence on an epic scale. Sure, he may not have been a seller at the deadline before, but it doesn't mean he hasn't been around the block a few hundred times, been involved in countless negotiations, seen first hand how other teams have handled their deadline deals. The guy is extremely experienced. That said, I am NOT some Holland apologist and it is fine to disagree with general team decisions and direction (which in many cases I do). But to say that Holland butchered the Vanek trade and took way less than other teams would've offered is truly laughable.
