unless you are arguing that the Capitals dont have a reasonable chance to win, then I would suggest Knuble has what he needs. A team that has an opening for what he brings to the table, salary cap space to hire him, and a reasonable chance to win.

If he signs with Detroit, he may end up bounced in the second round again. If he returned to Philly, where they dont have cap space for him, he's out after two rounds again.

You are saying that Knuble has thrown away his chance to win by signing with the Capitals...or am i wrong?
You're wrong. I'm saying he made a very uninformed decision if he's trying to win a cup. Frankly, I think he re-signed here because he likes it here. Nothing more, nothing less.
