I think what Buccigross writes is perfectly logical. Picking Atlanta 15th is far more of a statement than saying the Caps might make the playoffs, but if they don't its still good for them.
He admits to being wishy washy afterall. He can see that they could be a lot better than 14th and says so. The issue is that what will get them into the playoffs or not is fairly unproven players on defense. Poti might have been a great choice, but his rep is not that of Nik Lidstrom just yet. Morrisonn and Jurcina are not household names and Green and Schultz are not established even.
Someone says the Caps end up 3rd thinks that the Caps will strike paydirt with the defensemen and that they will dine on a division where the other teams could all legitamately stink.
This just an opportunity for the anti-ESPN to take some shots. What he wrote is reasonable.
