Stamkos has what, 1 ES point against the caps this season, and guess who's matched up against him, Alzner. Going into next year, the caps are still at least a top 10 team prospect wise. They've won the division 3 years straight(likely 4 after this year), and have been among the teams with the best prospect cuppoard.

Kuznetsov, Eakin, Holtby, Orlov (in that order) are 4 very solid prospects. Then they also have Johansson, Carlson, Alzer, Neuvirth just getting their feet wet, and they're young vets, Laich, Backstrom, Ovechkin, Green, Schultz, Varlamov.

There core group of youngsters playing top4/top6 is around 22-23, they don't need to restock their organizational depth, it's already stocked.
