"The Caps are a team with balanced scoring (seven players with 10 goals or more and three players maintaining more than a point-per-game), and an underrated and steady defensive corps. The only serious question mark is in goal, where back-up Brent Johnson has outplayed No. 1 goaltender Jose Theodore so far. If they can get the goaltending situation settled by the time the playoffs roll around, they could have a long playoff run. Alex Ovechkin is the league's best and most explosive player, Alexander Semin is becoming a force, and Mike Green might be the most unheralded defenseman in the league."
