NHL.com Previews The Caps

In case you missed it during the whirlwind that was the opening weekend of training camp, on Friday NHL.com posted their in-depth preview of the Caps.

I haven't read all of NHL.com's previews to use as points of reference, but this one is pretty effusive in it's praise of and optimism for the squad from D.C., freely throwing around phrases like "the Capitals are ready to challenge for the Southeast Division championship," and "some people, including Ovechkin, think he's the most talented young player in the NHL[.]"

Sure, there's some spotty fact-checking in there (Boyd Gordon was not the Caps first pick in 2002 - he wasn't even their second pick), but it's a good read nonetheless.
