The Washington Capitals have made several changes to a team that suffered a heart-wrenching playoff loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning last season. The team looks different, new. Six or seven new NHL-quality players have come, and they will be all be fighting for limited roster spots. This below seems to be the general consensus among Caps fans as to what the opening night roster will look like:

Alex Ovechkin - Nicklas Bäckström - Mike Knuble

Troy Brouwer - Marcus Johansson - Alexander Semin

Joel Ward - Brooks Laich - Mattias Sjögren

Matt Hendricks - Jeff Halpern - Jason Chimera

(Jay Beagle - DJ King)

 

Karl Alzner - John Carlson

Mike Green - Roman Hamrlik

Dennis Wideman - Jeff Schultz

(John Erskine)

 

Tomas Vokoun

Michal Neuvirth

With those lines in mind, here are a few predictions as to what each individual Washington Capitals player might be able to accomplish points wise this season. For the sake of the article, each prediction is made with the assumption that that particular player will play all 82 games, unless otherwise noted.
