Zubrus wasn't a bad player. A legit 2nd liner (shoulda been a winger). Who else was on that team? Was the PP any good?

We'll disagree I'm sure. That's fine. Vech can play harder, I'm sure. But there is a spiritual component to this (I don't mean religion). There's an emotional part--a player can only gve so much. Vech played his heart out for years until after the Montreal series. Last year was weird--Backstrom was terrible and Vech was pretty bad, too, in the regular season. Semin, too. It's like their fire went dim. I think it's just not fun the way the team is right now. Laich isn't very good. Ward is less good. Mojo not ready yada yada yada. It's easy to say play hard but Vech knows this team is going in the wrong direction. And, amazingly, the league doesn't like his style to boot. The Caps need centers and the environment has to get fun again.
