The Caps have all the pieces to be a cup winner, they just need an on-ice leader and less inner conflict.
IMO, they need to get rid of Ovechkin. He is a crybaby diva who thinks the team should revolve around him even though he isnt the leader that a captain should be and isnt the goalscorer that he once was.
Playoff disappointment? I don't think so. They were 6 seconds away from that series having a totally different look to it as well. With that said, there are some questions to ponder this off season....
-ovechkin's production in next couple seaons while he is still young
-gamble on holtby or not
To be honest, I really loved watching the Caps this post season loved what Ovechkin and Semin brought to the table.
