Oh and drafting Filip Forsberg was a steal in my opinion.
Why does he get a D because

he did nothing to improve the D
he brought in a center that can NOT win a face-off
He gave Mike Green 6.25M for three year, Huge gamble
Hamrlik. Ward Erskine Schultz are still on the team
as of right now the Caps are weaker then they were last season (imo)

He could still make some trades so right now he gets an incomplete

OH one last thing because there was a run on D-men which allowed you to take Forsberg does not make you a good or bad GM, that is luck of the draw

I will say I love the fact Oates and Johansson are back
Oates was one of the best face-off player in the game
Johansson was very good at playing his angles
two things the current team need to improve upon
