And not because the Capitals lost. Well, that made me mad too. But I’ll talk about that in a minute.
Excuse my language for the next paragraph.
What really, really pisses me off is how these so-called “fans” can sit there and talk shit about this team. Like seriously, shut the fuck up. Trading our whole damn team doesn’t do anything. People say, “trade Ovi, Backstrom, Semin and Green.” Well then who do we have? Do you really think that we’re going to get someone like the Sedin brothers, or Datsyuk? No. Those teams wouldn’t give up players like that…that’d be stupid. Just how it’d be stupid to give up our four best players. Maybe we need to change some things. No, we definitely need to change some things, but just getting rid of our best guys doesn’t do shit.
Okay. I’m done ranting for now.
The series was disappointing. But I think it was always really close. Except for last night. Well, we only lost by 2. I had a shred of hope when Carlson scored that goal. But it was short-lived. It’s over.
We’re not the only team going through this. San Jose is beating Detroit 3-0, and Boston is beating Philly 3-0. Wouldn’t it be amazing if Philly came back to win the series like they did last year? I hope they don’t though. Boston better win, and then they better absolutely dismantle the Lightning. And then the Sharks can win the cup. That’s what I’d like to happen.
So, we have a lot of free agents up for grabs this year, and I’m sure we can’t keep them all. People like Jason Arnott, Marco Sturm, Brooks Laich, Matt Bradley, Boyd Gordon, Scott Hannan, Karl Alzner, and Semyon Varlamov. Now, I’ve heard from sources that Hannan, Arnott and Alzner really would like to stay with Washington. Brooksy just wants a hockey team to sign him, and Varly wants to stay here, however everything is riding on the KHL offer for him. Personally, I really would like Arnott, Brooks, Hannan, and Alzner to stay. Brads and Gordo…I’d be okay if they stayed, and I’d be okay if they didn’t. I don’t feel like Sturm did a whole hell of a lot, so I suppose he can go. And as for Varly, I just want whatever is best for him. Because if he stays, I’ll be happy, but if he goes, that means Braden Holtby is our second goalie, and we all know how much I adore that kid. (: But no matter what, I’ll be sad to see some of these guys go. I really will.
The Washington Capital’s hockey season is over, but that doesn’t mean I’m done blogging (: We still have the rest of the playoffs, the Worlds (which Ovi is going to play for in Russia), the NHL Awards, and the Draft. And after that, I’ll find things to talk about. I promise (:
So, that’s it for today? Yeah. I guess it is. I apologise if I offended anyone with my statements in the beginning, but that does make me upset. Fans should support and love their team no matter what happens, or how many heart breaks they go through. That’s my preaching for the day. I’ll be back with a happier, nicer post perhaps tomorrow or this weekend. Adios!
