Team's really on a roll right now. Hope to take the momentum into the playoffs. Erat needs to earn his keep!
Really going to miss the southeast division next season. It'll be strange having legit competition.
Erat is the tits knees. Especially because it lets Oates play Ovie with Backstrom without having to worry about unblanacing the rest of his lines. Oates has really earned his keep around here and I hope they hang onto him for a long time. Ovie seems to love him, which is really all that matters at this point. If you can get him to play up to his potential he's the best player in hockey.
Yeah a lot of people were confused/upset when that trade went down. Not the case anymore. Erat's great.
Great time to be a fan of the skins, o's, nats, and caps! I hope my hoos keep up the trend.
Ovie is playing at another level this year, showing he is the best in the game again. Oates has these guys playing better than I have seen in quite a while.
Now if we can get Laich back who is the heart and soul of the team we will be real tough to beat. That's why we needed Erat because Liach is so iffy
GMGM said that this is the best he's ever seen Ovie playing. The goals are nice but he is laying MFer's out on the ice too. He put a (legal) lick on Evander Kane, who is a pretty big dude, that sent him down to the locker room for a concussion test
That is the difference between Ovie and "Pretty Boy" Crosby, and just about all others at his position. Ovie plays very physical and is not afraid to scrap.
I love seeing the Caps shit the bed every year in the playoffs. All these fake hockey fans come out of the woodwork and they get smacked down. I don't know who is playing the Caps but I wish them well.
I've really been enjoying the people that had no idea that Oates ever played for the Caps. Keep rockin that red.
Fair weather fans, they are every where ! I remember when Oates played for the Caps, he was a pretty tough dude in his day.
Got to meet him when i was 6. Nicest guy and super smart (according to my Dad). This staff is great. Between him and Calle-Jo it's like a walk down memory lane.
That's cool MV. I have heard that same thing from some others that have met Oates, and I am with you, love this staff and the way they have these guys playing right now.You have to give Oates credit on what he did with Ovie, moved him to the right side, and I wasn't sure how that was going to work out, but as we know now, it was genius, Ovie is on top of his game right now.
