Though I do admit that I would entertain offers for Kuznetsov, due to there still being some uncertainty as to if he really will come over and play.
Hi Mike--

You lost me (and I'd wager most Caps fans) with this comment. I have *no idea* how long you've considered yourself a Caps fan, but news flash for you-- we have been the type of franchise you just described from 1982 til 1998-- and I'd trade all of that for just ONE Cup. Years and years of just "being there" is crap. If you don't want that Cup, what's the point of actually competing???

And your arguments using Chicago as the poster child of "what not to do" is silly. They are as competitive as anyone in West, and are STILL in it, year in, year out, irrespective of their post Cup salary purge.

Cup or Bust. At least for this 35 years and counting Caps fan.
