That's such a tenuous thing in the NHL. A bad 10 game stretch next fall for Holtby and they may well not have one anymore.

In reality, the Capital predicament is really just a lesson on how hard it is to win in the NHL. You can't even really say the playoffs results are that harsh on them. I don't think in any of the past seasons they were prohibitive Cup favorites or even the best team in the East really. They're a good team, but that's about it. The Caps were a good team at times in the 80s too and it didn't do them much good then either.
