Old Lou knows how to build a team. He did it in New Jersey and he's doing it on the Island. Trotz always did more with less in Nashville and I bet the Caps regret not paying him what he wanted after the 2018 SC win. Both these guys are easy to cheer for. Winners win and keep winning. There's no splitting the atom here.
There used to be a clueless blogger here by the name of Jimmy Tanner who enjoyed calling Lou a dinosaur. Well Jimmy, he's still roaring and you're still whining about the greatest team ever assembled in the cap era failing to make it out of the first round again.
Keep it going, Dinosaur Lou! 👍

About to turn 79 in a few months and still balling.
