I just wanted to give my two cents on the Capitals situation this year. While we have gone through so much this decade, ups and downs, the organization has been able to built a great young core with oozing talent at all levels. That, mixed with a healthy group of veterans should be the perfect mix. I honestly thought/think that this year is our year. I haven’t lost faith but I’m not really sure what’s going on this series, hopefully just growing pains against a good team, don’t get me wrong the Lightning are a great team, and if they win the series then they win. But, truthfully I expect more out of a team that has been in and out of the playoffs the last three years. But, if we do lose I’m NOT that worried, because I know for sure that there will be huge changes, whether we want them or not. Boudreau will be fired, players will be traded/signed/etc, and new personnel will be brought in surely. If we can’t win with this team, I truthfully believe that Washington will go through a youth re-build. Really, I think that’s the best thing that could happen for us. We’ve got a few top-tier prospects oozing with talent and a strong prospect system at many levels of hockey. If this indeed happens, I really expect Cody Eakin, Dmitri Orlov, Evgeny Kuznetsov, Braden Holtby, Stantislav Galiev (also suggested by an NHL Writer), and possibly a couple of other players up. It has worked for teams like Nashville, Philadelphia, New York (Rangers), Pittsburgh, and other teams. If this team can’t win with a solid mix, then why not bring in all the solid talent that we’ve got? What do other fans think, or am I just crazy?
Stanley Cup= Great , Keep Going
Elimination= Youth Re-build with a lot of talent
We had a mini youth re-build this year, this one would be more like that and as impactful.
