OVIE NEEDS NEW PLAY­MAKER

The Hockey News - Fantasy Pool Guide - - Washington Capitals -

HOW WILL the Cap­i­tals re­place the cre­ativ­ity and pro­duc­tion of Mike Ribeiro, who is now in Phoenix. Alex Ovechkin and Nick­las Back­strom will con­tinue to be of­fen­sive pil­lars, along with blue­liner Mike Green. A re­turn from in­jury by Brooks Laich and Martin Erat will help with sec­ondary scor­ing. In goal, the Caps have faith in Braden Holtby but don’t dis­count Michal Neu­virth.

NICK­LAS BACK­STROM
