THE CAPS DID NOT "WIN" THE EAST
Please excuse my yelling, but if I hear Ted, GMGM or Coach Boudreau talk about how the Caps won the East again I'm going to throw my remote through my TV. Well, not really, since the Caps aren't worthy of causing me to have to buy a new TV. GMGM apparently (and I say apparently because I didn't listen to his interview on NHL Live) once again, spouted the bullshit that the Caps won the East. The Caps were the number one seed in the East going into the playoffs, they didn't win the East. If they won the East, they would be playing in the Stanley Cup finals. The Boston Bruins won the East and I saw them get the Prince of Wales trophy that comes with winning the East. The Bruins should feel insulted every time someone from the Caps organization mentions that the Caps won the East.
The Caps should man up and learn how to play playoff hockey instead of pulling stupid non-existent accolades out of their ass. They don't deserve kudos for anything.
The off season hasn't even begun and I'm already depressed about next season because the Caps won't come close to sniffing a Stanley Cup any time soon with this useless patting themselves on the back for winning nothing. As I always caveat, I hope they prove me wrong because I want to be proven wrong...desperately.
