There’s been a lot made about the Washington Capitals’ offseason in acquiring guys like Tomas Vokoun, Troy Brouwer, Joel Ward, and Roman Hamrlik to help them get a little tougher to be ready for the offseason. After two straight years of seeing the Capitals get bounced from the playoffs all too soon, the pressure is on for the Capitals to get it done in the playoffs.
