"If the Caps finally break through and make the Cup run many expect, their stars will have to be stars, but their grunts will have to step up, too; enter [Jason] Chimera. At 6-foot-2, 216 pounds, he’s exactly the type of guy who can step in when one of the Capitals’ finesse guys finds the going a little too tough in the playoffs. Assuming that happens, Chimera, 30, will be primed to score at a much better pace than the 0.43 clip he did during the regular season."

"I really think the Washington Capitals, who are not known for playing great overall team defense, as the highest scoring team in the NHL, has a chance to debunk the 'defense first' mentality. If they do it I think that will be tremendous news for the rest of the NHL, because usually there is a mimic factor that happens. And I think that would be very, very positive for the League."

"I see the Caps goaltending as a strength and not, as many do, a weakness. True, I'm arriving at that conclusion unconventionally, but you can't discount personal motivation even when winning the Stanley Cup seems like it would be enough."
