    Washington 2012 NHL Draft thread

    Time to add some depth to this organization!

    Of course the Caps hold 2 first round selections at 11 & 16.

    Wilson was a bad pick imo (going to be a 4th liner) but I loved the Forsberg pick at 11

    Wilson was a safe pick. He wasn't going to last after Philly at 20. I look at it like this:

    Upside we get a Milan Lucic.

    We probably get a cross between Chris Neil and Jason Chimera without the speed.

    Downside we get a Brandon Prust with more scoring.
