Winning Stanley Cups in the NHL is about being good and dangerous every year, with four rounds there's no way you can say "this" is the year. But if you're there every year some years it happens. The Caps are getting more consistent, the Wings did that in the 90s before they broke through too.

Anyway, I was just having fun with you Langley, I wasn't really dumping on the Caps. Looks like we're about to follow you anyway. Two of the three games we take the lead into the third, give up the tying goal in regulation and lose in OT. Sometimes it's like that.

Man Caps get swept and Gary Williams retires. The last 24 hours couldn't be much worse for my sports teams.
RIP SEAN TAYLOR #21

I understand it is tough to win the Stanley Cup. I know the Caps had a great season. BUT, to be the #1 seed and get swept is unacceptable!
