As of now, the Washington Capitals have a total of seven players signed for at least the next three seasons, according to CapGeek.com

Of those seven, five have deals of at least four seasons or more, so from an outsider's perspective, one has to think that Washington's management has faith in the long-term prospects of this group consisting of Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom, John Carlson, Brooks Orpik and Matt Niskanen. 

Aside from them, Brooks Laich and Karl Alzner have three years remaining on their contracts, and one has to assume that Evgeny Kuznetsov, Troy Brouwer and Tom Wilson are in the team's future plans as well. 

So, with that in mind, here are predictions for which current roster players will be Washington's best at each position five years down the line.
