I love how everyone always mentions ovechkin as an elite playoff threat, yet he does absolutely nothing in the playoffs and is a career loser. So is stamkos, so is Tarasanko so far. I do agree we need a superstar caliber player, but we need a patrick kane or sidney crosby, not a choker. We have enough of those.
My #1 reason why we lost was no offensive threat on blueline. Dumba and scandella are only guys that ever show any offense. Suter and Brodin get most ice time, even on power play and are complete non threats. That goal from Suter last night on pp was pure luck. They never even have to cover him because of his non threat factor. They will be OK with allowing that 1 goal every 200 lob shots.
