Fire George
The depth on D is actually quite good, and it's not the reason the Caps are terrible. The reason (on D) that the Caps are terrible is that there are really only two top 4 defensemen (3 if you count Green), and 7 bottom pair/depth defensemen. Without that depth, they'd be icing the entire Bears defense (as it is, 4 Hershey Bears are currently recalled).

The real reason the Caps are where they are now is that they underperformed by 5ish points during the "adjustment to the system" period, and weren't that good to begin with (and yes, fire George).
