NHL.com Looks At The Caps' Top Prospects

NHL.com writer John McGourty offers his similie-laden look at the Caps' top prospects ("like a Doppler weather screen, a storm can be seen brewing and it will soon be bearing down on the Capitals"... huh?).

I'm not sure how McGourty defines "prospects" (leaving guys like Tomas Fleischmann, Eric Fehr, Jeff Schultz and Mike Green off the list may give some indication), but it's a good read and certainly gives good reason for optimism. As Ted Leonsis (and Vogs before him) has written, the Caps "probably have as much young talent in our system now as any time in [the] team's history."

Now if the future could just hurry up and get here...

1) Nice to see that Bourque is on the team's radar and may actually get his first taste of 'The Show' this fall.
2) If Francois Bouchard, who looked like the best player out there last week in rookie camp(including Backstrom), can come into September with the same flash he might be difficult to send back.
3) Would be nice to have another scoring RIGHT wing on the team. Of course Cap fans would be up in arms if Matt Bradley didn't play much! LOL

Matt who? Seriously, this team has suddenly developed so much young, quality depth I have to believe that some sort of trade is imminent. Preferably. it will be for a veteran defenseman.

The general rule for the summer prospects' stories was that the players still had rookie status, less than 25 NHL games. There were a few exceptions over the 30 teams.
Thanks for the nice things you said about my article.
