i think this is about matchups.

(TB trap the caps entering their zone, washington aren't a good dump & chase team, that you need to be to get at tampa's D - Mark Crawford stated this well last night on the nhl network)

- we can compete with tampa because we can play that dump, chase and recycle way and we successfully frustrate their top players with our D.

we just cannot match them for skill when they play their speed game. We have similar issues this year playing a super fast Montreal team.

i think it comes down to matchups
Pretty good post, but I disagree with the bolded part. Tampa owned us all year, and their offense is at least comparable to WAS so I don't think we would fair too well against TB.
