Every Washington Capitals fan thinks they can be an "armchair general manager" for their beloved franchise.

"You should draft this player. He's good."

"We need to sign this player. He's the last piece of the Stanley Cup puzzle."

"Why don't you trade away that player? He's a bum."

Today, I will take on the job of armchair general manager of the Washington Capitals, to fully examine the status of the current roster.  By doing so, I will answer such pressing questions as: Which players stayed? Which players left? Which players joined the team? Is the team better or worse than 2012? What changes still need to be made?

This examination will also include a look at how well the Washington Capitals are built to sustain injuries, and what if any pieces of their roster could be moved as part of a trade.

So, without further ado, here is a look at the Washington Capitals through the eyes of the "armchair general manager." The team will receive a grade for how they fared in each category.
