Hockey's Future has just posted a season review of the Caps' American and East Coast Hockey League prospects. Some of the immensely encouraging highlights:
[Eric] Fehr is a great prospect with tons of potential.
[Tomas] Fleischmann’s progression has been excellent. In the new NHL built on speed and skating, his overall game could easily propel him into a future second line scorer some day if he reaches his full potential.
[Jakub] Klepis has the size, skating ability, and finishing touch that coaches love. He has all the tools to become a great second line player when his skills and abilities all come together.
[Mike] Green is starting to look as if he will be one of those guys who breezes through the minor leagues en route to a fantastic NHL career.In addition, HF reviewed the performances of Russian prospects at the recently-concluded World Championships and had this to say about Alex Semin:
[Semin's] trip to Riga can be deemed successful and it’s obvious that the time he had to spend in Russia was beneficial as he matured and gained the much-needed experience of being a leader.To quote Ben Folds, "Oh what fun, I can't wait 'til the future gets here."
