Capitals owner Ted Leonsis took a page out of Davey Johnson’s book last week, saying in an interview on ESPN 980 that he didn’t “see any weaknesses” with the team.

It wasn’t quite “Stanley Cup or bust,” but as colleague Dan Steinberg noted, critics and unhappy fans will almost certainly harp on it if the Caps end up struggling at all this season.

Of course, we’re already harping on it. Only so much to talk about this early in the season, after all. Watch below as the “Post Sports Live” crew discusses the motivation behind the comment and Leonsis’s relationship with Caps fans.
