With free-agent signings far and few between in the nation's capital, Washington is looking to go into next season building on a solid foundation of defensive responsibility and timely scoring.

The big news of the offseason was the acquisition of Dallas Stars center Mike Ribeiro and the Capitals' two first-round selections in the draft, Filip Forsberg and Tom Wilson.

With depth waning on the wing, the Capitals felt it necessary to restock at both sides by selecting Forsberg, the first overall ranked European skater with the 11th overall pick, followed by gritty, tough forward Tom Wilson soon after.

Ribeiro cost the Caps a draft pick and center prospect Cody Eakin, who had appeared in a few games for Washington at the beginning of the season. Acquiring a second-line center was the team's top priority and based on Ribeiro's reputation and past point totals, that need looks filled.

Before we know it, the 2013 season will kick off, and everyone is wondering what the Capitals' opening-day roster is going to look like.
