With Majesky, Biron Gone, Caps Less Likely To Win Cup

Earlier this week the Caps formally severed ties with traffic cones defensemen Lurch Majesky and Mathieu Biron. One would have thought that these moves would make the team better, addition by subtraction, if you will. One would be wrong, at least according to some of the oddsmakers in Vegas.

A few weeks back, at least one book had the Caps listed as 75-1 longshots to win the Cup in 2007. Now comes word that the Caps' odds have dropped to 100-1. The only major difference in the team between then and now has been the departure of Tweedles Dee and Dum. Therefore, the resultant lowering of the team's chances for success must indicate that the squad was better off with the pair. Quod erat demonstrandum.
