An interesting change is taking place among the national hockey media on their view of the Capitals. This weekend Mike Milbury said the Caps were starting to play some defense and he was impressed.

Today on NHL Live responding to a question about the Capitals need for a defenseman, EJ Hradek asked "Why? They are loaded." Then something to the effect of "their defense fits their style and their forwards. The only thing they might need....is a veteran that has won it before. A role player."

Essentially he is saying that the Caps are perfecting their game and the defensemen they have fit what they do as well or better than what they might be able to acquire.

I wonder if we see more of this over the coming weeks.
