Sad thing is I expect to lose every game now and expect to not score more than 2 goals. Wasnt long ago I expected to win EVERY single game and score 5 goals. How times have changed...

Here's to hoping the Caps break their slump before the lunar eclipse. Let's go Caps!

@ nicety251

Thanks for doing a job that the Post should have done earlier in the day.

It's a line up that only usless overweight foul mouthed looser coach could love. The sooner he goes the better.

How sad is this when you almost want them to keep on loosing until Ted or GMGM man up and do what needs to be done.

Fire the SOB!

Pissed in Sarasota.
