I think that statement sums it up right there, and I think you're spot on. It's why the Caps haven't gone anywhere in the Ovi-era.

I don't see much changing for the Caps next year. Their third and fourth lines aren't good enough to let them NOT rely on the top two lines for everything. You need solid third and fourth lines to win in the playoffs. Look at what having strong third and fourth lines did for the Penguins...

Mike Sullivan did an unreal job with the Penguins this year. He totally transformed that team overnight. He's my vote for coach of the year. I wish the Caps had a coach like that.
