Artistry and I learned our lesson the hard way in 2010. After Jaroslav Halak brought the Montreal Canadiens back from a 3-1 series defecit to stun the President's Trophy winning Caps, he and I sat by the window at a Starbucks in downtown Washington, D.C. looking at people walking by and debating how upset we thought they were. Much of this was done because it's just funny when the Caps lose, but a bigger part of it was a sense of relief that the Pens wouldn't have to play a loaded Caps team. But then the Pens fell to the same Habs team, and it was a sobering reminder that the hockey Gods are always listening. No matter how fun it is to troll the Caps -- and hooooo boy, is it ever fun -- nothing good can come from it.
So we're not going to troll the Caps today. We'll let Caps fans do that. After the jump, check out some selected comments from various Caps message boards.
