Maybe I'll care about the Caps again
When the Caps start caring again or
When Alex Ovechkin starts scoring again or
When Nicklas Backstrom wakes up out of the coma he's been in this season or
When the Caps start crashing the net, doing the dirty work, winning the board battles and throwing guys out of their crease or
When their power play isn't known as the power kill by the fans for its complete ineffectiveness and when the coaches figure out what to do about it or
When Coach Boudreau stops putting John Erskine in the press box for an injury riddled Tom Poti who didn't even make it out in the 2nd period in that crap game against Tampa Bay tonight or
When Boudreau figures out how to hold these professional hockey players accountable for their putrid play or
When Boudreau can get this team to show up for a game that decides the division lead.
This screed is not aimed at the rookie blue liners, John Carlson and Karl Alzner, the goal tending duo of Semyon Valamov or Michal Neuvirth, who get hung out to dry way more than they should, John Erskine, Matt Hendricks, the defensive play of the Mike Green/Scott Hannan pairing or the Hershey boys, Matthieu Perreault and Jay Beagle (gee, he was pushing guys out of the crease tonight).
Let's go Caps and see if you can get your heads out of your rear ends although, right now, I'm not hopeful about that. The only thing I am is one very frustrated Washington Capitals fan. Some things never change.
