I wouldn't go as far as saying OV bought in. The team still looked dysfunctional. Hunter instilled a dummy proof system and yeah it worked, if you consider a 2nd round exit successful, but Boudreau got the Caps just as far.

The Caps fell apart cos McPhee and Boudreau listened to the media after losing to the Habs, I mean losing to Halak. They haven't been the same since.
