"Strengths: Even with the Capitals recent on-ice success, the prospect depth remains very good as a whole. Karl Alzner and Simeon Varlamov are well on their way to becoming fixtures in the talented Washington lineup. Varlamov heads up a very talented group of goalies that includes Braden Holtby and Michal Neuvirth. The Caps have a myriad of offensively capable blueliners. Two-way defenseman John Carlson, slick Sami Lepisto, and creative playmaker Keith Seabrook will help to keep Washington’s power play churning on all cylinders for years to come. "Weaknesses: Many of the top-tier forward prospects have graduated. Outside of Alzner, there are not enough defensively responsible defensemen. "Top 5 prospects: 1. Karl Alzner, D, 2. Anton Gustafsson, C, 3. Simeon Varlamov, G, 4. John Carlson, D, 5. Oskar Osala, LW. Key loss to graduation: Eric Fehr."
