Washington Capitals: 10 Bold Predictions for the 2011-2012 Season

Now that the free agency buzz has died down a lot, a lot of hockey's faithful are now finding themselves bored in the summer heat of hockey's offseason.

Personally I would rather it be freezing cold outside and hockey be in season than have the nice beach weather. But since it's now a little bit over halfway through the offseason, it's time for some more speculation about next season to begin.

After the Washington Capitals' last season was interesting, to say the least, and many of their star players had bad seasons I believe that the Caps are set to enjoy a much better season and postseason. 

There were many upsides to the 2010-2011 season that I believe that Capitals will continue to build on, like their stellar team defense during the latter half of the campaign. Some of the new additions look to be promising as well. Some old players look to keep their games going well during the twilight of their careers. Some returning players are looking to improve from the slumps experienced last year or make good on big contracts they were given.

So, without anymore delay, let's look at 10 predictions for how the upcoming season will go.
