Sticking with our preseason prop bets, guesses at who will play third fiddle to Ovechkin and Backstrom.

For four-straight seasons (from 2007-08 through 2010-11), Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom finished first and second, respectively, on the Caps in regular-season scoring. Ovechkin didn't relinquish his top spot in the two campaigns since, but Backstrom missed half of the 2011-12 season and finished fifth on the team in points, then ended up a single point behind Mike Ribeiro for second in 2013.

Assuming (hoping for) good health and a return of the two big guns to the top slots on the team's points ledger, who will most likely end up third?
