If you're going to be outclassed regularly you might as well have youngsters like Eakin, Kundratek and others from a sell-off in the lineup. I don't think those two would be much worse than Knuble & Wideman at the moment. Same goes for Holtby/Vokoun lately. If they are significantly worse...well...who cares. Call up some of the AAAA talent to be exposed instead.
I think we will make a step forward today. While losing 0-5 Caps will display good effort level and ring some pipes in the process (Semin 2, Green 1). Shot blocking and leg moving Capitals is good to see.
