No, they don't. Their wingers are mostly full of suck.
From their last game.
Ribiero, Backstrom, and Ovechkin are their only forwards who are consistent producers, and no, you can't put all three of them together because two are natural centers. The rest of them, you can expect anywhere between grinder-like production to .5 PPG production from at best. Green produces points, but is about as stupid as Chris Campoli when it comes to defending in his own end.
With the coach throwing out lines like these, you can tell they will be lucky to make it out of the first round of the playoffs. The deadly duo of Ovechkin and Backstrom is broken up so some guy named Jay Beagle can do just enough so OV doesn't suck.
