Evgeny Kuznetsov had one of the worst defensive seasons in recent NHL history, and it still wasn’t a bad season overall, because he’s a very special boy and we love him very much.
I doubt anyone thought of Lars Eller‘s 2017-18 season — you know, the one in which he scored the Cup-winning goal — as a letdown. Still, he followed it up with a bounce-back outing that has me feeling real good about the future.
The Washington Capitals evidently liked what they saw out of Pheonix Copley‘s rookie season, as they extended him through the 2021-22 season, but there’s still a lot of uncertainty about the future of Caps goaltending.
