    Ah, okay.

    So, this is what I can look forward to, another fast team but only this time one that is faster than the Caps AND has a Cup or three on the resume?

    I thought the Cap got faster this past offseason?

    Offensively, sorta. They have Ovi who can skate, Mojo and Winnik can fly, Kuzy glides faster than most can skate, but only one of them is a first time Cap. Defensively, yes. Caps got deeper and, if Trotz keeps 7 defensemen (i.e. Nate Schmidt), a bit faster. Caps game plan relies on cycling the puck. It's hard to do when you've got a defenseman or two breathing down your neck, flying all over the ice. The Caps are a big team. Fast, but not as fast as the Pens and we saw the havoc it caused the Caps. 5 OT games, 6 OT periods, in a 6 game series. All decided by one goal. It's nice to see the Caps come out ahead, but it certainly could have gone either way.

    The Pens are fast and have the skill/experience, not even counting the postseason.

    Alzner looks like he'll be back soon. Schmidt has been way too good to ignore and scratch going forward. Shattenkirk needs to step up defensively. And more production out of the bottom 2 lines.

    It's going to be so good.

    Caps are bigger, not faster.... I think playing Toronto primed them for Pitt. Leafs emulated the Pens play against the Caps.

    Hope Caps keep Schmidt in. Alan May was saying he wouldn';t put it past them to play the extra D (Nate) and lose a forward (prob Connolly).
