Capitals have 0 Stanley Cups :-(

Which is why they did very little to celebrate.  It was cool they acknowledged it - but anything more would have been, like you said, silly. 

Fans should care and make a big deal about it.  Ovy and the Caps should not.

It sucks when you love sports but don't know anything or anyone in this thread about sports..lol..feel like the guy who doesn't know anything about cars.

 

I feel the same way. I guess that us southerners should stick to our non-ice related sports.

Another NHL graphic I've been working on.  This time inspired by NBA JAM

Fatcheerleader's Capitals vs. Bodom's Bruins

For those following along, I've made a Tecmo style playoff bracket (using my mini logo graphic above).

No problem.  I enjoy creating NHL playoff brackets.  I should say upfront that I did not create the 8-bit Stanley Cup.  I found that online somewhere and thought it looked cool and fit with the 8-bit theme.  What better way to combine my favorite sport with my favorite video game (if only NHL94 had season mode... and people could figure out how to make the COM tougher, among other hacks). 

 

I'll be updating that bracket above for each round of the playoffs.

Lets Go Caps!

 

I had the Caps over Ducks in my bracket finals.

 

Original predictions:

CAPS over Leafs in 5

PENS over Jackets in 7

HABS over Rangers in 6

SENS over Bs in 6

HAWKS over Preds in 6

DUCKS over Flames in 6

OILERS over Sharks in 6

WILD over Blues in 7

 

Who I'd like to see win: 

Tier 1:  Bs

Tier 2:  Caps, Preds

Tier 3:  Blues, Wild

 

Indifferent:  Ducks, Leafs, Blue Jackets, Sens, Sharks, Flames

 

Do not want to win:

Hawks - I'm still not over 2013 and I'm jealous of their success

Rangers - I like this team, it's just a NY thing

Pens - I like Crosby more than most Boston fans, just don't want to see a back to back

Oilers - Chiarelli will try to take credit, but their success is due to high 1st round draft picks for sucking over the past 10 years

Habs - because f*ck Montreal

Bodom, you better pull for MY CAPS when your Bruins get eliminated!  I don't care how much you like Smashville now that they swept the Blackhawks.

 

Go Wild!!  3-3 now.  I like Budreau.

Leafs and Oilers are here to stay.  

 

I don't like seeing so much referee TV time when I watch my hockey. That's one of the main reasons I have soured on the NFL. 

 

Lastly, ..!.. the Penguins.  Caps go to Game 7 with the Leafs and the Pens have almost a week off to rest and prep.  Ugh.

My rooting interest changes as the playoffs go on, but right now, yes, I am hoping the Caps win it all.  If the Caps fall to the Leafs then I'm jumping on the winner of Nashville/St. Louis.

The Pens are without Letang.  Rest or not, if the Caps can't beat them this year, they never will.
