08:18 AM ET 01.25 | After the Capitals submitted another lackluster effort Thursday night, much of the postgame chatter centered on work ethic -- though some players were more harsh in their critiques. [The Capitals wake up] Friday morning as the only team in the Eastern Conference without a point. "Embarrassing is almost the right term right now," Capitals right wing Troy Brouwer said. "Pathetic is probably a better one. I feel bad for the fans. I'd like to finish a game with at least 50 percent of the fans still in the stands. Their reaction is completely warranted, booing us. We haven't earned any of their respect." ... The Caps are 0-3 for the first time since 1993 when they started the season with six straight losses.

Nothing good going on, currently, for this team. No D, No O, No Ovie...nothing....

Losing to the Jets on the back end of two games in two days was bad enough (they had 1 win in 13 all of last year)...but some of the credit last night has to go to Carey Price.

It can't be surprising that some teams are struggling early. The usual month of training camp and preseason being shrunk to a week almost garuntees that a few teams will take a week or two before they are playing well.

exactly...the first games of a season are usually sloppy and hardly foretelling for the season....except this year, they're magnified because of the Dwarfus Lockout

The only thing I know for sure about this season is that I, nor anybody else, knows for sure wtf is going to happen this season. At least not for a month or so.

Oh, and that Dion Phaneuf needs to break his legs. Both of them. And never play hockey again. I definitely know that part.

I'm so glad that Burkie "won" that trade.

So, their home lives are suffering, too, eh?

Totally agree with this statement

Craps (ha. ha.) will be fine.

Just keep Holtby up in Washington. That will give the Baby Pens half a chance against Hershey. And the way the Baby Pens have been playing lately they need all the help they can get.

Brouwer apologizes for 'pathetic' Caps

Slappy have you heard the rumour they might be changing their name from Caps to "Lower Case?"

And that is highly evident with some suprises starting out....Wings, Caps, Rangers....and Ottawa at 3-0 with 2 GA. Holy crap, didn't see that one coming.

Nice. And it'll probably include a voiceless bilabial fricative. For you non Noam Chomsky fans it's a word that begins with an "f" sound.

After I put up my disdain for his mistakes thus far yesterday morning, I listened to the radio and read reports that had nothing but glowing praise for Dion so far this year and asked myself wtf?

After last night, that shouldn't be a problem anymore.

Just for fun...

Yep. Some teams are in line for a hard fall in a week or so as everything settles out.
