Fleischmann scored at a pretty good rate in 2010, picking up 51 points (23 goals and 28 assists) in 69 games, 0.74 points-per-game, which would have looked even better if he had managed to play in a few more games. His 51 points have him ranked 89th among all forwards, with some room to grow in 2011 and would be considered a pretty good gamble, if you decided to move him up a little bit.

The Capitals are showing some good cap management skills, as they should be starting to look more and more at some depth players, with most of their skill already signed on. Right now, I have them with 18 players on their current roster for an annual cap hit of $52.9 million, leaving them with about $6.5 million for their remaining five roster spots. The Capitals are without any more key restricted free agents, so now they should be looking within to get some depth, possibly one more unrestricted free agent and then the team should be built. I don't expect too much more from Washington, but we can always be surprised, right?
