This is my biggest issue with Trotz. I don’t think he’s enough of an alpha at times to really command his team

The only coach I remember the Caps having that was an Alpha was Dale Hunter and possibly Ron Wilson from back in the day. Wasn’t Wilson the HC when the Caps went to the Stanley cup finals in 96? Never mind, Glenn Hanlin was the coach then.

Trotz on scratching Vrana: "We felt that this is the lineup we need to go with tonight. I thought V made a really good play on the goal. He didn't have a lot of ice time, and there's some things we need to clear up in his game and get him reset."

Yep, you’re totally right. The biggest issue with the capitals is their hall of fame player who’s one of the greatest goal scorers of all-time. It probably has nothing to do with all the loser coaches Ted keeps hiring.  

That's FIVE coaches you're blaming.

Like I said, Hunter TRIED to get Ovi to play defense... and he took the Caps to within one game of an EC final. What that earn him?

What did Ovechkin mutter about Boudreau? Maybe it was because https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/capitals-insider/post/did-alex-ovechkin-disrespect-bruce-boudreau-after-benching/2011/11/02/gIQAnytYfM_blog.html?utm_term=.cf8ed266390f

Two-thirds of his career wasted in terms of, you know, winning when it matters.

But big Russian score lot goals. Grrrrr...................

Oates was horrible, Boudreau was brought in to replace another horrible coach who was fired during the season and has had the same amount of success he had here everywhere else he’s been. Dale Hunter took a fast-paced team and tried to make them play slow. And to top it all off, he hired a guy who could never get past the second round to coach a group of guys who can’t get past the second round. So yes, he’s hired crappy coaches and his teams have paid for it. He’s also responsible for allowing McPhee to trade Forsberg. None of that is on Ovi.

So why exactly isn’t Holtby starting? Did he have that bad of a regular season?

He got over worked during the season because Trotz didn’t have Gruby play enough. When Holtby got overworked then he started playing poorly and Gruby replaces him. Gruby played well and Trotz went with the hot hand, but Gruby hasn’t been good this series. I think if they lose this game they’re crazy if they don’t start Holtby in game 3.

He’s being sarcastic. Tons of capitals fans actually believe the teams problems all these years has been Ovi. They can’t win because of Ovi. Caps fans are delusional.

Always root with your heart but bet with your head against DC folks. Gonna make a ton of money on the Jackets over the Caps in the series, just like I did last year.

Unbelievable none of those shots went in, hit the post of course. 52 shots in the game for the caps, how can they not have won this?

Well, 54 stops by the BJs goalie. This game went exactly like game 1. They better get a total reversecof fortune when they go to Columbus.

Exactly, if they don’t come back in this series, he’s got to be canned.
