Looked like NYR, especially Avery, were able to push his buttons and get him to stop playing the way he had all season. 3 puck moving defensemen next season will be a welcomed change
I think that's something that will come with maturity and age. The Caps need a veteran leader on defense badly; look at what Arnott did for the forwards. Hannan was supposed to be that guy, but I didn't honestly see it from him.

And no, Erskine doesn't count as a veteran leader.
