In regards to grit its something we really need to add. Im not one to throw the blame on Semin but I would move him ans Fehr and bring in some more consistent grittier players. Semin could be a valuable player for a team ( yes in the playoffs too) but he doesnt fit very well here with the lack of grit in the top 9 of the lineup. I really hope that is something we address this offseason.
Eh, not really. The Caps made numerous outrageous mental errors against Tampa that cost them the series.

Lecavalier scoring in OT on a bad line change comes to mind.

More than anything it's about discipline and leadership.
