The Next Wave NHL
WASHINGTON CAPITALS
SUMMARY
The Caps have plenty of defensemen coming, all with a variety of skills, but they lack any high end prospects outside of Ilya Samsonov. Years of loading up for deep runs have stripped the tea of top assets.

UP
Garrett Pilon had a strong year and his game continues to develop, the Caps may have a guy who can develop into a top 6 player on their hands

DOWN
Christian Djoos, no doubt the offense is there, but defensively he hasn't progressed, it will be interesting the impact he has in the NHL and if he can be relied upon defensively.

WHO TO WATCH
Connor Hobbs had a phenominal WHL season putting up a pile of points. How he translates his game to the pros will go a long way to determining whether he's just a good junior player, or a guy who could lead a teams offensive attack.

TEAM RANK - 7th
