Keep An Eye On The Caps

from Scott Burnside at ESPN,
But the Capitals are climbing the ladder as a team in a way that few others are. While the lockout was debilitating for some franchises and confusing for others, the Capitals took advantage to build from within, which is just as well given that owner Ted Leonsis isn't about to spend much money after the Jaromir Jagr fiasco. Hanlon points to center Brian Sutherby, who has played with a significant portion of the team at a number of different levels in the past four or five years. "Brian Sutherby has been pretty much the captain of a group of younger players. They've established that, and it's a really neat relationship. These guys have been together in their summer camps and they've just been so close and so tight," Hanlon said.
