Last year, the Caps added center Jason Arnott and defenseman Dennis Wideman at the deadline and Marco Sturm on waivers shortly before. Those guys weren’t the problem, but they also proved they weren’t the answer to winning the Cup.
Last offseason, when Brooks Laich signed a six-year, $27 million contract to stay with the Caps, he thought this team could win at least one championship.
