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.

I agree, but on paper, this team is still really good at the top. Ovy, Backstrom, Oshie & Kuznetsov is as good as any top 4 F in the league and Niskanen, Orlov & Carlson are all good, and Holtby is a Vezina guy. So there's reason to expect the team to be good.
