I understand the strong feelings you have for the MaxPac incident so because of those, I won't respond for fear of starting a flame war over an unwinnable argument. This one has bean beat to death by both sides and not much more can be said.

Aren't they all about that? If not, the Caps would have quite a few cups of their own in recent history.

The playoffs are a war or attrition. The cup winning and losing teams are asked to play every other night for 2+ months with the intesity ramping up after each and every game. Being prepared for that and constantly rising to the challenge day in and day out is part of the championship recipe.
