As I see it, the Caps organization has painted itself into a corner. The have dedicated themselves to build a competitive team year after year but not a championship team.

The experience at a Washington Capitals game is, or was for awhile, a flashy and exciting one. We were awesome offensively. We have nice lights and audio in the building. But the focus is on how the team will play in the market (ticket sales, merch sales) and not how the team will win the championship. It's as if Ted and the gang think that luck is the critical element in winning the Cup. Not only luck, of course. He knows you have to build a competitive enough team to make the playoffs. But after that, this organization doesn't seem to have a vision. It's just: 'Make the playoffs, and hope for the best!"
