Whether you were optimistic about the team or not, giving up as the deadline rolled around was never going to be an option. They could have spun selling off Wideman and bringing in someone else, for example, but trading their #1 goalie when they had every reason to believe they'd need him for the stretch run was never going to happen.

(And, to be clear, even if you have no chance at the Cup, making the playoffs carries huge value. You can't just say "no thanks" to that kind of revenue in a market like DC.)
