Since being drafted 26th overall in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, Caps prospect Evgeny Kuznetsov has received tremendous hype. He has seen his talent take off to the point where he is now considered to be the most talented player currently not playing in North America (he was voted the league's top prospect by The Hockey News).
New Caps prospect Filip Forsberg, drafted 11th overall in 2012, is already that good.
A dynamic offensive player, the Swede has the potential to revolutionize the Caps offense. The most talented player to be drafted by Washington since Nicklas Bäckström, the 17-year-old brings a lethal shot, a good two-way game, a physical side and deadly goal scoring skills, all qualities that were in short supply at the Verizon Center last season.
Filip Forsberg is going to play a major role in bringing a Stanley Cup to Washington. To have success, Adam Oates must bring Forsberg over the Atlantic and to the NHL as quickly as possible.
