I don't think there's anything that could devastate caps fans anymore in these playoffs other than getting swept by the VGK (and even then, scf baby) so I think the hockey gods are showing mercy

It's pretty easy to understand American disdain for Canadian branded hockey if you look at olympic medal tables. Caring about where an NHL team is located is dumb though, barring the normal homerism I guess. Care about the players, cheer for the team that has the players you like.

Beyond your own team, there's really no reason to not have an interest in every game.

While my Red Wings didn't make the playoffs, the Lightning have my all-time favorite player running the team, and I've got friends on the Jets.

There's always someone to root for, even if it's just "most fun team left".

I'm always sad at how low the ratings are in some finals compared to others, in the sense that so many, presumably, fans of hockey clearly don't want to watch unless it's their own team. I couldn't care less who is playing the games for watching purposes though I usually do have preferences for which team to win.


My own fandom is on hold until Melnyk's new liver gets a rejection and he dies. If you find this too insensitive, assume I said until he moves to Ethiopia to farm coffee.

We moved out of the worst timeline months ago and are now in the dumbest timeline.

So that Ovi blast is going to bounce off Orpiks head back down the ice into an empty Caps net.

This. They've blown multiple 3-1 series leads in the last few years. It's all about building up the hope first. Everyone expected a 2nd round exit, so it had to go up to 11.

I go more the 'who do I dislike more' route after the Caps are eliminated. With multiple recent Cups to the Kings, Penguins, and Bruins, it has been a bad time.

But I agree, if you follow the sport you can find a reason to be invested in each game to one degree or another fairly easily.

Caps need to keep this really strong checking and defensive play up if they want to have a chance. Tampa never got into their game until midway in the third and then the Caps found their footing again. They got slack for maybe a 5 minute period and gave up two goals fast. That second one was maybe the laziest softest poo poo I've seen Holtby give up in this playoff run tho.

That slacking window happens almost every game, from 5-20 minutes. It's been a problem since before Trotz, and is a big reason they have so many 7 game series and early playoff exits. Game 1 vs. Pittsburgh this year was a prime example. They owned most of that game, but since they weren't able to run up the score, the Penguins won with 3 goals in 5 minutes. I assume it's a mix of psychological factors when they're up a bit and simple exhaustion from playing hard (except when it's at the beginning of the game). It's like the team collectively decides they've got it in the bag and step off the gas.

Spiting Blues fans is a big reason why Vegas is so high on my list of teams I want to win.

i can see how you'd be embittered what after starting to watch hockey in 2011


after a lot of thought and some serious soul searching i have decided to hate the Washington Capitals for the following reason

1) their superstar player is from some other country and we might have to fight them in a war soon

2) donald trump lives kind of close to there and he might take an interest in their favor

3) washington DC is full of Bad People like Ted Cruz and that one fat guy

4) traffic in the DC metro area has seriously annoyed me on multiple occasions

5) dale hunter once played for them and he was a cock


The Tampa Bay Lightning have several good looking players and i've never been there but its wikipedia entry looks nice so they should win this series

You should definitely go with this username and the pic of Buff. I just wanted to pair a picture of Josh Morrissey with Morrissey lyrics.
