I'm sure if Pittsburgh had lost to Detroit in 2008 you'd be arguing that "Pittsburgh has not won anything". It's a weak argument as it is luck-dependent.
There is an element of luck involved in everything, including drafting in the first round.
The fact remains, the Washington Capitals have not even made the conference finals. They weren't ever good enough. Losing a series 4-0 is not luck, they weren't good enough.
Legitimate contenders by who? paper? That's why games are played. The Washington capitals success isn't much better than our own. The grass is always greener.
