In the weeks since the Caps lost the chance to win the Stanley Cup there has been a lot of talk about their inability to close the deal. We have been watching this team at practice and have seen their drive during games. There is no doubt in our minds that the Washington Capitals took the challenge seriously.
It starts at the top and there is no one who wanted this more than the Caps’ Captain Alexander Ovechkin. Even Wayne Gretzky said after meeting with Ovi, “How much passion he has for the game and how badly he wants to win a Stanley Cup,” according to Alex Prewitt.
And then we have our favorite defenseman, John Carlson, who tied Ovi in goals and assists during their playoff stretch.
Following their elimination from the playoffs Nicky told reporters, “We’re gonna do it one day. I promise them.” We believe him.
And finally, lets not forget Justin Williams. Willy was brought here to win. That’s all he wanted. He set an example for the team and he gave it his all.
We still believe in these guys and can’t wait to see how next season shapes up!
