Also check out Tarik's chat, which just started a few minutes ago. Sick of him yet?

Why is Alzner not here tonight? What with Poti's groin? I thought that salary cap is not an issue in the playoffs.

Read Puck Daddy's preview of our series and here's my comment on it:

As usual very entertaining and right on. In my preview I sheepishly noted that while I realize how terrible it sounds I was really hoping for Three-o-more to get hurt so that Boudreau would have no choice, but to go with a much superior goalie, Varlamov. Yes, Varlamov's NHL sample is small (albeit excellent), but I also watched him lead his team to the RSL playoff finals at just 19 last year. He was superb.

If you watch Varlamov play even for a few games you can see that he sees the puck through traffic much better, doesn't flop down early and has much better rebound control. On top of that he's extremely calm and has an excellent glove.

On the other hand, as a Caps fan, I need to wear a diaper when I watch Theo play because every shot on goal makes me sh$t my pants.

Oh, and one more thing. What is this crap about Clark coming back? Please no! I've seen more than enough of him this season and we're much better off without him. He was absolutely useless and just took up a roster spot. I would take half the Hershey roster ahead of him.

BTW, I finally caught our last game of the season (had it recorded). Talk about elevating my fears. Theo was at his very best if the goal was to impersonate a large piece of Swiss cheese on skates.

Clark was hurt thus poor performance. He was struggling every game to play injured.


Salary cap goes out when Bears are done in playoffs

Why are they scratching Brashear? Dont they need the tough stuff.

I thought they mentioned also that Aucoin was in one of the lines? Is he? Isn't he?

Don't agree with the doo-dah parade about not having Clark just because their fantasy hockey team s*cked because Clark wasn't playing. I'll give Clark the benefit of the doubt that he'll contribute to the Playoffs and I'll trust Boudreau and Company with whatever they decide. Until then, no point in being backseat drivers when regardless of what we think, it's gonna' happen the way it's gonna' happen.

Unleash the fury, Capitals!

Look for OV to give Avery a mid-ice kabong tonight, Scott Stevens-style.
