I think the 4-12 you're thinking of may be in clinching games during the Ovechkin era. Since Ovi's been on the team, they've played 16 games when they'd already won 3 in a series, and they've won exactly 4 of them.

Actually it's definitely only 4 game 7 wins for sure. I can think of them all (88 vs Flyers, 09 vs Rangers, 12 vs Bruins, 15 vs Islanders). So fun!!!!!!!

It is amazing how we are coming from totally different places for game 7 tomorrow. I am just thrilled to have a game 7. Even if we don't win tomorrow I can wear my Rangers shirt proud this summer. I want to win it badly, but coming back from 3-1 to force a game seven two years in a row is huge!

Where as for the Caps, this is yet another defining moment. The fan base needs this game tomorrow and the teams legacy under Ovi is on the line. Definitely more pressure on the Caps and their fans.

Can't wait to see how it plays out!!

Yeah that's it. Even more amazing actually. I know people will put this on him but this is also just the history of this team. Lions fired a coach 1.5 years ago for doing something they've been doing for 50 years. It's just...what...they...do.

Did I miss any game 7 victories? Pretty sure they've only won 4 of them

Yeah I mean, I don't think if the Caps lose tomorrow then it's a sure thing that Ovechkin's Caps will never have success. However, there's a couple important factors to consider. One: this past offseason, Leonsis (who I dislike for many reasons) actually ponied up and fixed most of the issues the Caps have been having. Got rid of McPhee (great move), brought in a new GM who wants to play defensive hockey (smart move), that GM then brought in real solutions to the D problem, and they brought in a legit head coach with a substantial bit of experience. And yet here we are again. Game 7 on the road after being up 3-1 in round 2. The other thing is Ovie's guarantee. Again, he can't just say "yeah we're gonna lose, don't bother" but when he swings around confidence like that I think it could bite him in the ass. I think this group badly needs to get over the hump this time because considering everything in this long winded post, it's time to get it done. I think the mental stability of this group is on the line big time this time. I mean how many more problems can be addressed with the end result being the same? I just feel like if they drop this one again, it's gonna be really hard to shake off in years to come.

You're probably right. I haven't looked it up. But I also don't know how many they've lost. It's possible that's 4-12 too.

With the way the Wizards and Nationals have been playing lately, maybe the Capitals need to assign someone #34 to be the hero.

If(when) the Caps lose tomorrow, I'll probably disappear for a while, but I expect I'll be back before the end of the playoffs. My time here will not end when the Caps season does.

I bet a week to 10 days we'll know. I just don't see why he'd want to deal with Snyder there. TO is...well...TO. I think it's Edmonton, Buffalo or Detroit. Friedman made it sound like Edmonton was moving towards McLellan cause they didn't want to miss out on Babs and then on him. I'd hate for him to be in the same division with the Sabres but they are a few years away so guess it wouldn't be the worst. Like I said before, just want it over.

New to this thread. But I'm a Blues fan. Great to see so much NHL chat here. Word on the street is that the Blues are keeping Hitchcock for another year. I thought for sure he'd be gone if we didn't make it to the WCF, let alone lose in Game 6 of the First round again.

They should get rid of Hitch and hire Bylsma. And then Edmonton should hire Hitch if they can't get Babcock.

kev87lads 05-12-2015 02:44 PM

Re: The NHL Thread
 
Hitch is a good coach. I don't think there's any denying that. And I know it's hard to win the Cup. But he hasn't won the thing (since 99) or been in the Finals since 2000. ( I don't think....) So maybe he needs some time away and teams shouldn't be so quick to hire him. Could be said for a lot of coaches I'm sure. But just mentioning him since new Blues guy brought it up.

I would have thought a quiet talking to Babcock behind the scenes and see for the Blues. That would be the team I'd want to coach. Would remind of me Scotty Bowman taking over a good regular season Red Wings team and taking them to the next level.

I don't necessarily think Hitch is the problem in St Louis, but inevitably teams shake things up and usually the coach is the first to go.

I agree with Tim, I think Babcock could take them where they wanna go. Still, they're in the Central, and as you surely know, life in the Central is incredibly difficult.

Was literally just reading NHL.com's story about this. I guess it's not too surprising since Lamerello stepped down as GM but still. It almost feels like he's ready to be distanced from the Devils which is weird because there was such a good thing there. It didn't end on neccesarily the best terms but it never felt like things were on bad terms either, but after reading this story and remembering back to his press conference earlier this year when he joined the Blues, he seems like he doesn't want anything to do with New Jersey

Seriously. I've noticed a theme though.

like he was forced out in favor of Schneider

kind of similar to the favre rodgers situation.
unfortunately for the devils, schneider isn't rodgers yet.

This exactly. Marty didn't really seem thrilled to be basically shown the door. And why would he. I feel bad for the guy, but at the same time, like Tim said, he just couldn't play at the same level anymore. It's a tough situation to see.

Dammit, I wanted that one so bad. Gentlemanly is such an underused adjective.

Calder: Rebecca de Mornay. Has made brief appearances in the past, but really had a strong rookie year showing this season.

Norris: Swordo. His team fell short of expectations, but Swordo was always back there, steadily defending to the end.

Vezina: ~crashintome89. Witty, clever posts stabilized the thread throughout the season and helped foster a consistent, light atmosphere.

Byng: Kev87Lads. Just a sweet guy.

Selke: Barbogast. Was frequently called upon to defend his ailing club, and did so with just the right mixture of honesty and pride

Adams: Lockman21. His knowledge of the game in general kept us on an even keel. Chris was also a strong Norris candidate due to his switch to D this year, something that has made me eternally proud of him.

Hart: TMoore. Lead the thread in posts for the year and was consistently great in all aspects of the game.

Great regular season, guys.

Last year's awards for the record.

Don't worry. You hitting me now shouldn't matter. They SHOULD be regular season awards only. :lol

I assume Tim wins Jack Adams this year because of the 80 percent increase in posts dealing with Babcock alone.

SirBobalew 05-12-2015 05:21 PM

Re: The NHL Thread
 
I've always wondered how people's post counts get up so high sometimes. Now that I've spent some time in this thread, I get it. I expect mine to climb much faster in the near future than it has since I joined the site.

the norris is all but mine.

the jackets were eliminated from playoff contention for the last two weeks of the season and i still made them one of the most discussed teams during that span.
amazing effort, really.

Quite honestly I'm hoping for the Hart this year

Re: The NHL Thread
 
All right, our 2015 NHL THEED awards!

Vezina: dembetc. We all get a little crazy in here, but Sarah's always back there to anchor us.

Adams: TMoore. This guy leads the post count by over 1,000 posts in here. Holy crap!!! But more importantly, always around to set us straight.

Selke: hailtopitt. Consistently attacking while still being called upon to defend. ;)

Richard: ~Crashintome89~. No one has scored more one-timed zingers in this thread this season than Matt.

Byng: For the SECOND YEAR IN A ROW, the ever pleasant Kev87Lads. Remember, the Byng is technically awarded to the nice guy who is also a GREAT player.

Norris: Rebecca De Mornay, for his consistent defense of his team, no matter what.

Calder: SirBobalew. He's only been around a short time, but IMO time enough to earn an award. Great having you on board.

Conn Smythe: bonzo48280, UCFish for their increased performance during the playoffs.

Hart: Barbogast. Hard to deny the impact he's had on the thread this year. MVP status for sure.



And don't worry, there's more!

Buccigross Award for top hockey writer: Roose13

Lappy Award for best trash-talker (formerly the Avery award): JRS1386 (SECOND YEAR IN A ROW, FOLKS)

Keenan Award for being a great hockey mind with the ability to lose it once in a while: aeroshady

Chelios Award for being the oldest (and probably most accomplished) poster in the thread: Salrx95

Shane Doan award for bullish devotion to team: HallowBillies and Pathetic

Don Koharski award for most disagreed with poster: Bron

Ilya Bryzgalov award for poster with most :lol after a quoted post: Brohan Santana

Charlie Conway award for most willing to learn more about hockey: thechad9000

Rick Nash award for most non-existent during the playoffs: Swordo84


Sorry to anyone I've missed... we'll get you!

WOOHOO! I won something! ohmygodohmygodohmygod

Seriously though, so happy I found this thread. To be able to talk hockey with DMB fans combines pretty much my two favorite things, outside of my family and the woman to whom I will soon be related by marriage.

You've earned it, son. Now, just don't go pulling a MacKinnon next year.

Congrats, Chris.

Keith Yandle award for biggest snub: Lockman21

(But also cuz Yandle's a dandy of a player and Chris has an eternal hard-on for him)

Can we give out the Ted Lindsay Award for Best Players Rep to: fonzz41

Totally deserves it. Putting us all on his back and giving out player awards. Matty is terrific

From Wiki: The first NHLPA was formed in 1957 by hockey players Ted Lindsay of the Detroit Red Wings and Doug Harvey of the Montreal Canadiens after the league had refused to release pension plan financial information. The owners broke the union by trading players involved with the organization or sending them to the minor leagues. After an out-of-court settlement over several players' issues, the players disbanded the organization.
