Caps React to Umberger's comments

As Tarik noted following Washington's 3-2 victory Saturday night over the Blue Jackets, Columbus forward R.J. Umberger caused quite a stir with his postgame critique of the NHL's best regular-season team this year. On top of the familiar refrain that their freewheeling style would mean "a good defensive team is going to beat them [in the playoffs,]" Umberger was blunt in saying, "they play the wrong way."

This morning was the first chance for Capitals players and coaches to react and most took a diplomatic approach. Forward Jason Chimera, who played with Umberger earlier this season before being traded to Washington from Columbus, said he wasn't sure if his former teammate's quotes were taken out of context, but no matter what, it should provide some more fuel for the Capitals when the postseason begins next week.

"We've had a lot of people say that about us this year so it's just another thing to tweak people," said Chimera. "A lot of people said this team wouldn't lead the whole league and we proved that wrong. I know R.J. a bit; he's an emotional guy, too, so I don't know if he meant to say it like that or it came out wrong, but you use that stuff as motivation. I think it may have been taken out of context a little bit, but it's just motivation. You gotta prove people wrong, they probably say we can't go all the way, but we know we've got it in here."

Forward Mike Knuble, a teammate of Umberger's when both played in Philadelphia, said he heard through an intermediary that Umberger felt his quotes were taken out of context, but Knuble wasn't surprised to hear something along those lines from an opponent.

"Hey, we've outscored people, we've won games, 7-6 or 7-5, but we're not naive enough to know we're gonna continue to do that and survive and play well in the playoffs," Knuble said. "The number one thing you gotta get in the playoffs is goals against down and keep it down, and we all know that in this room. It just takes a little bit of extra commitment, but a game in Columbus in the beginning of April is not a very good indication of what kind of playoff team we're gonna be."

Coach Bruce Boudreau flashed a sarcastic grin when Umberger's quotes were brought up in his daily press conference, but tried to downplay the comments as any sort of issue.

"I think we're a good team; I don't think I even have qualify what he said," said Boudreau. "We're all allowed our opinions. I like the fact that as a coach, I've got a few championships under my belt playing this way, so we'll leave it at that."

Captain Alex Ovechkin said he hadn't even heard Umberger's comments until a reporter mentioned it this morning. "They can say whatever they want, but we gonna see what's gonna happen in the playoffs," Ovechkin said.

"That's his own opinion," defenseman Mike Green added. "We play an aggressive game, but that's why we're so successful during the season. It's obviously a different style, but now having played two, three years in the playoffs, we really understand what it takes [to win in the postseason]."

Posted by: kenhyde | April 5, 2010 1:13 PM | Report abuse

The reality is that Umberger comments, based on only the Columbus game, were kind of accurate, at least to how the Caps can be beat. The problem with his comments, aside from the "they play the wrong way" remark (esp comparing the records of the Caps and Blue Jackets), is that they were based off that 1 game and the Caps don't play like that all the time.

If the Caps played the way they did against Columbus in the playoffs, they will lose to a disciplined, defense team (though in fairness to the Caps, ever team this year that's played them has tried to be solid defensively, not take penalties, and frustrate them).

The forwards in the Columbus game were awful defensively, and WERE, as he said, just looking for breakways and odd-man rushes. Ovie dogged it about as bad as I've ever seen him, though he does that a lot when we're ahead.

But they were playing a lousy team, in a meaningless "exhibition" knowing that everything is wrapped up. Then they jump out 3-0 in the first and you realize the game is pretty much over. So there were lazy forwards playing lousy, lousy defense.

I highly doubt the Caps will do that in the playoffs

Based on all of the odd-man breaks the Caps gave up Saturday, I can understand why Umberger said the things he apparently did, taken out of context or not. A better offensive team than the Jackets probably would have beaten us. However, I don't think the team will be that "loosey-goosey" in the playoffs. If they are, it will be a much shorter run than we all want.

Posted by: vermontcaps | April 5, 2010 1:25 PM | Report abuse

Somebody mentioned that the ONLY reason the Caps clinched the President's trophy last night is because San Jose lost. Well, I look at it this way. After the Caps lost in OT to Ottawa last Tuesday they were 7 points from clinching the President's trophy and looking like a team going through the motions. In just 6 calendar days the Caps took care of business and earned 4 points in the standings while the Sharks lost 5 points in the standings. I would say the Caps "backed" into the President's trophy if they had continued to lose, but the fact is, the Caps took it, they went out and got the President's trophy. They are 6-1-3 in their last 10. I mentioned it earlier, the only team in the league that has earned more points in their last 10 is Detroit.

@vermontcaps

So you're saying that the Caps shouldn't be proud of being a skill team? What about Detroit the last 15 years or so? Pretty much at the bottom of the league in penalties and fights year in and year out, and you'd never put the "gritty" tag on the team as a whole. But I guess they shouldn't be proud of all those Stanley Cup banners hanging in the rafters.

There's more than one way to skin a cat. Go become a Philly fan if you want to see Berube style hockey because it ain't happening here for a long time my friend.

The Caps are under a microscope because they are so damn good this year...let em say what they want....The Pens were hardly an elite team all of last year...this thing is up for grabs, and we'll just have to see how it shakes out.

For anyone to think the Caps fans and organization will say they are worried that they dont have what it takes this year to win...forget about it.....they were neck and neck last year with the Champs...why would this team be worse then last year?

Must be a slow day with the Caps, still the Umberger quote being written about.

I am almost sure that it is not even on Umberger's mind a second after he said it, and yet, there is a group of people who can't let it go - and they don't play hockey.

Here is what I am hoping for in these last few games.
1) That any of the Caps don't get injured
2) That OV gets a few multiple goal games
3) That Green solidify his status for the Norris
4) That BB limit his stars minutes so that they can be fresher for the playoffs.

vermontcaps: What hell are you talking about. A reputation that isn't anything to be proud of? Players from other teams take pot shots at this team because they are pissed off that they can't beat them. Their reputation precedes them which is why road and home stadiums are filling to see the Caps. No other team in the league thinks less of a team because they don't carry a Carcillo in the line-up.

_828: NO rushed for 51 yards and won this year's Superbowl. The Colts only rushed for 99.

Last year Pittsburgh rushed for a whopping 58 yards and won last year's Superbowl, the Cardinals rushed for 33.

In 2008, Giants won and rushed for 91 yards, and the Pats rushed for 45.

None of the teams in the last 3 superbowls rushed for the type of yards that used to be needed to win games that resulted in wins. Didn't mean to turn this into a football board but the example used was bogus.

A quick look at the Washington/Columbus games the last 2 years

Columbus 3 Washington 0 (in Washington)
Columbus 3 Washington 0
Columbus 5 Washington 4 (in Washington)
Columbus 2 Washington 3

Looks to me like Columbus has pretty much had Washington's number.

If Washington can't beat the 14th place team in the West how do they expect to beat the best teams in the West?

I think Umberger pretty much summed the Caps up right. High risk, high reward.

We aren't going to lose to any defensive team, and we aren't a "college/euro team" as vermont has just proposed, but our system is run and gun.

I don't have a problem with that though.

Posted by: richmondphil | April 5, 2010 1:56 PM | Report abuse

vermontcaps:

"sorry folks, but umberger is dead on...."

I agree. But I would qualify it by saying that Umberger quote is based on that one game.

"we don't play traditional nhl hockey; we play european/college hockey and it's got to be frustrating to teams that we don't engage (we'd rather beat teams w/our power play than fists)...."

I am not sure I understand. Are you saying "traditional NHL hockey" is fighting with fist?
I think that style went out before I was born. Detroit won many championships without the goons and the Caps have said that they would like to emulate them.
Power Play would give you chances to score goals (needed to win a game) Fist would penalize your man and handicap your team (given the other team a better chance to score).
Do you watch much European hockey? I do. and I don't see what you are seeing.

"sure we're winning more, but personally i miss the ron wilson teams of the late '90s (hunter, simon, berube on the 4th line?? those were the days)..."

Can't fault you for your preferences, although I don't agree with them. It sounds like you would like to see a fist fight more than a winning team.

"i think the caps are gaining a reputation around the league that isn't anything to be proud of"

Who cares? Let their record stand for what it is.

@HockeyFan13: Well, since Columbus seems to be headed for the golf course next week, I'm of the opinion that it foesn't matter that much.

The Caps are 10-5-3 against the west this year, tied for best in the East with Buffalo.

Enh, it's okay. There's some truth to the comments based on the way they were playing in that Columbus game, and it's not bad thing for those comments to get posted in the locker room so that everyone is reminded.

Most of the problem with those comments is not their substance so much as their timing - to say that coming off a loss sounds like sour grapes and the message gets lost in the perception. Doesn't that happen to all of us sometimes?

Nothing is guaranteed in the postseason, and we shall see. The guys are saying all the right things, and we'll see if it translates.

As for those commenting that certain posters here should go root for another team - yeah. These are not your father's Caps. They play a very different style from what many long-time Caps fans are used to. Remember, Detroit has a Cup or two from their explosive offense period, so it's not impossible and there's more than one way to skin the cat. There are some people here who are stuck in a mental rut and should go elsewhere if they don't like what they see here.

I like how Boudreau put it: "I don't have to QUALIFY what he says"...as in the Columbus Blue Jackets will not QUALIFY for the playoffs, yet again, this season, and Boudreau has had successful teams in the past at other levels, and this team has only been spiraling upward since he was promoted to the NHL, so yeah, Umberger isn't saying anything much. The Caps can only burn themselves in the playoffs - that much is true, or have Colin Campbell, Gary Bettman, and the NHL mafia pull another '09 out and give the Penguins the Cup, again.

I've said before during the season and I'll say it again at the end of the season: The Caps have got to get used to playing (and winning) 2-1, 3-2 type games. Their penalty kill STILL gives me cause for worry (See Calgary going 3-4 the other night and they gave up a shorty to boot last night, too!). Perhaps that is offset by their #1 ranked PP unit and their almost score-at-will mentality but the playoffs are won and lost on tight, defensive-type games. Yes, I love it that the Caps have the offensive power to score whenever and by whomever. Yes, the goaltending of Jose has me feeling better. But I do not pretend to think the Caps will waltz through the playoffs winning 6-2 every other night. The last week of the regular season should be used to play a full 60-minute grind-it-out type game (especially playing Boston twice), thus preparing properly for their (hopefully) DEEP playoff run to the Staley Cup!

That said, this has been a magical season, great to be a Caps fan (when the rest of Washington area teams suck!) and indeed a real treat to see this team play. Does anyone get the feeling Ted has put together a potential Edmonton Oiler type dynasty in the making??

our defense has been terrible for quite some time now and hasn't improved since the trade deadline. I don't see us going very far in the playoffs mostly because of how dead everyone looks......blah blah blah oh we know the season is over and we're first....if these games are practice....then you play like you pracitce. For us that is not something to be proud of right now. ALSO we need to quit changing lines so much chemistry is destroyed that way. One bad game from a line or player and next game it's completely different. 14 game win streak and lines weren't changed once....coincidence I think not.

We tried the David Poile/Bryan Murray recipe of D-first, and just enough goals to win. That 3rd goal to win the game never came. Seems like Poile is up to the same tricks in Nashville. They may have the best D in the league in terms of personnel, but none of their forwards could make our Hershey team (well, maybe Erat).

Now, we play the GMGM-BB Molatov cocktail style of hockey. Now the 3rd goal comes in the 1st period, and while sometimes we need 5 to win...I'd rather live and die by this style.

Here's what is troubling me...the last couple of games I've noted at least twice in each game where Ovie has been roughed up, (tripped twice in last night's game) in clear view of the refs with no call. What's with that??? I usually agree with the zebras on most everything they do, but this is troubling!!! The guy is a playmaker, and part of his contribution is that he is hard to defend, thus he is going to draw penalties...if the refs refuse to call them then his impact on any given game is greatly reduced.

Caps fans, rejoice. We are beginning to see the dawn of Empire. This is the way players and fans talk about the Yankees, the Patriots, etc. They hate because they can't beat. Now the Caps just need to take their regular season success deep into the playoffs.

Note to the haters:
To put hockey in Madden terms, the team that scores the most goals, wins. The Caps have found what is a more unconventional way to achieve this end. But the end is what counts.

The complaints against the Caps are irrational and mostly bogus. See Steinberg's latest Caps blog. We do fine against the West (got a win against the West's current 2,4,6 & 8 seeds, did we not?), and we don't get all our points by beating up on an otherwise piss-poor SE Division (subtract vs-Caps records from East teams' vs-SE records, and we played our division better than most others in the conference did). Our GA (224 on 79 games) on the season is the same at PIT (222/78), and not far behind SJ (210/79) or VAN (211/79), but you don't hear much about their "defensive shortcomings." And only one team in the league has a +80 goal differential.

I'm ready for a DC franchise to be the object of derision and not its league's laughing stock. Winning the Cup won't shut the rest of the league up, it'll probably make things even louder. I say let them hate. And best of luck if you're planning on beating these Caps.
