We have two former first round picks playing overseas who will one day don Caps jerseys and really excite our fans. We are hopeful that next season, one of the players will make our team, but they have to earn that right. Maybe at some point next season, fans could see both players in Caps uniforms, time will tell.
They are both budding top six forwards, and will add speed, skill and star quality to our lineup. Many experts consider Kuznetsov the most talented player in the world not playing in the NHL. He is big, fast, talented and has that flair for greatness. We saw it on display in the world junior championships, that is for sure.
And as this article denotes, Filip Forsberg is a well-rounded, gritty player with skill and size. He handles the puck very well and is a winner.
