You might want to actually take a better look @ the CBJ.

Yeah, they gave up Nash, but look at some of the players they've amassed:


F:

Brandon Dubinsky, Artem Anisimov, R.J. Umberger, Derrick Brassard, Vinny Prospal, Mark Letestu, and Nick Foligno.

D:

Jack Johnson, James Wisniewski, Fedor Tyutin, Adrian Aucoin, and Nikita Nikitin.

G:

Steve Mason, and Sergei Bobrovsky.

I'm sorry, but you look at the CBJ, and then look at the Caps, and I'm liking the CBJ's chances a whole lot more than ours. Their D is unquestionably better than ours.

Now, IMHO, Backstrom is a better forward than anyone on their roster, but they have some pretty good balance there.

PLUS: they've amassed a ton of picks.

Gotta like their future.
Thats nothing to be really proud of... 8 Laich's would beat them
