you come at this with the idea that cup or bust means cup. it usually means bust and with the caps it almost certainly means bust.

was it you that called me myopic? lol....careful not to give yourself too much credit. you assume i know what myopic means.

so....for the record, if the caps went for broke and had the montreal series happen again and then spent the firesale season and 4 or 5 more seasons trying to get back to qualifying for the playoffs....thats ok with you?
So does going broke entail either

1) Trading Ovechkin, Backstrom, Carlson or Alzner?

or

2) Trading everything they have for extremely short term vet solutions?

Because if not, this "spending 4 years out of the playoffs" angle is nonsense.
