I'm pretty sure Wideman was brought in to complement Green as an offensive powerhouse type d-line. It didn't work out that way and he didn't play well, I'm just saying the situation Wideman was in would be hard for anyone. All I was trying to say is caps fans are just as bad as New York fans when it comes to drops in production. Oh Ovechkin only scored 38 goals last season?! GET RID OF HIM. I mean comon, he scored at like a 50 goal pace the second half of the season, and he's now under a 3rd coach in 18 months. Everyone needs to chill out. We can have ONE BAD SEASON without needing to burn it down and rebuild everything. We still have a VERY solid core if we don't get rid of anyone. Green, Ovi, Backstrom, Ribeiro (hopefully), Holtby (we can hope), Brouwer. I like the way things are. Given time to adapt to the new coach and click next season, add in Forsberg and Wilson. Then Kuz the year after. I can only see things looking up from here. And if we miss the playoffs this year, get a good draft and then add another key player the year after Kuz. That's constantly improving every year. We don't even need to worry about missing our "window" until Ovi/Green/Backstrom turn like... 33 or 34. Their 25/27, that's 7/8 years away. And most people have their most productive years in their late 20's.
