We got to see a little bit of Kundratek last season and while he wasn't anything to write home about, he wasn't horrible, either.
The young Czech was paired with Roman Hamrlik to ease the transition into the NHL. The two fellow countrymen played well enough together, although Kundratek showed absolutely no offensive instinct.
At only 22 years old, there's plenty of time to let the young blueliner develop with the Hershey Bears, where he should get a heavy workload.
There is about a 100 percent probability of seeing him play a game or two next year in the NHL
One of the more useless trades the NHL saw this summer was when Chris Bourque was sent to Boston in exchange for Zach Hamill.
The Bruins most likely made the trade as a favor to Chris' father, Ray, who is one of the greatest Bruins to ever play. The Capitals did it because they had seen enough of Bourque.
Teams tend to give second, third and fourth chances to players who really don't have the ability to play in the NHL if their draft position is high enough, and Zach Hamill fits that bill as a former eighth overall draft selection by the Bruins in the 2007 draft.
There's a good chance Hamill will at least be called up to the majors if not just to sit in the press box. At this point in his career, it's safe to call Hamill a bust, but Washington will see if they can get a flash in the pan out of him.
As seen in previous slides, there isn't a whole bunch of depth at the wing, and even less scoring talent at any position.
Galiev could either play next season in juniors or be sent to the AHL. If Galiev does indeed get sent to the minor league affiliate, I suspect he'll get a call-up only if the Capitals are having serious scoring issues, as neither Joey Crabb nor Wojtek Wolski really qualify as fresh blood.
Stoa, like Hamill, might get another crack at the NHL due to his former draft position. Chosen 34th overall by the Colorado Avalanche in the 2005 draft, time is not on Stoa's side.
Stoa elected to play four full seasons at the University of Minnesota and as such, he didn't make the jump to professional hockey till after college.
At 25 years old and not showing too much promise at the professional level, Stoa might get another shot with the Capitals, but it's highly doubtful we'll see him next year.
