The Washington Capitals might be off to a bit of a slow start for the 2013-14 season, but several players are beginning to build a case, very early on, to be the MVP of the team at season's end.

After Saturday's tough 2-1 loss to the Dallas Stars, the Caps find themselves with a 1-2-0 record and a lot of time to think about things before their next game, on Oct. 10, against the Carolina Hurricanes.

Certainly, that is a much better start to the season than last season's 2-10-1 start. But it is still not quite as good as many had hoped for.

Up and down the Caps roster, there are standout players already. Seasoned veterans such as Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom are already producing.

Young players like Connor Carrick and Tom Wilson are getting a true opportunity to show what they are capable of.

New players like Mikhail Grabovski have been more effective than anticipated.

We have seen both goaltenders play and, at times, play well.

Defensemen like Mike Green and Karl Alzner have had their moments as well in this young season.

When the season finally concludes in April, one player will have stood out as the best player for the Caps in 2013-14. One player will end up being the team's MVP.

Here are some early odds on who that player might eventually be.
