    • The Caps "took some risky prospects but added players with significant upside with their first four picks and complemented them with safer player in the late rounds." [Hockey Prospectus]
    • Ed Frankovic breaks down the Caps' picks [WNST]
    • Looking at which teams toed the line and which ones strayed from the pack in Newark. [BHS]
