    Well as the time appears to be a little closer for the Capitals for drafting another player the caliber of Alex Ovechkin. For the moment the big club needs a faceoff man desperately. Anyone down on the farm to be called up to preform those duties with a much higher success rate presently on the current roster. If not apparently a trade has to be in the offering in finding that particular required player.
