ESPN has the Caps third in their preseason power rankings, behind Penguins and Oilers.

Even disregarding the last decade of playoff disappointments, I'm not sure how you can justify Caps that high.

They kept most of the nucleus in tact of a team that took the eventual Stanley Cup champs to 7 games.  Given their regular season performance, it seems about right.

Not that they'll go anywhere in the playoffs, but another Presidents' Trophy isn't out of the question.
