Hard to pinpoint a "need" for the Caps because they're literally losing to the Rangers due to Lundqvist's brilliance.

The defense is solid - Carlson, Alzner, and Green are pillars to build around for the next decade.

The forwards are great - led by Ovy/Backstrom, supported by MoJo, Brouwer, and ?Ribeiro heading forward.

The goaltending is obviously great - Holtby is holding the fort down well for them.

I think if anything they could use 1-2 more scoring threats (Erat should have played tonight, is he injured?), and a re-distribution of the lines. Give Backstrom Brouwer/Erat and let Ovechkin carry a weaker C with a solid playmaking W like MoJo.

Even their bottom-3 D and bottom-6 forwards were appropriately serviceable.

If Evgeny Kuznetsov (widely considered best player outside the NHL) comes over it could change the complexion of that team.
