    Alright guys!

    Since all of us are getting a little antsy stuck at home with no hockey, I thought maybe it's a good idea to get into some real hockey discussion again to take our minds off of the more sobering things happening in the world around us today.

    And with most of the minor/junior leagues suspended and/or cancelled, it's TIME.....

    for the CAPITALS TOP PROSPECTS 2020 Quarantine Update!!

    Going to be voted upon again by the most knowledgeable hockey fan base in history.. YOU!

    Since we're not sure when we'll have hockey again, let's add to the discussion on who you voted for, what is your estimated date of arrival to the big leagues NHL (if at all), and your realistic expectations for that prospect and how they would fit with the Capitals. Or anything else regarding these prospects.

    Again, to be eligible for the poll, player must be 25 years or younger and has played no more than 25 NHL games.

    If there is someone I missed in the poll or you think should be added, please post about it below.

    I'll leave the polls open for 3 days due to the excessive amount of time we have to kill.. I'll see how it goes and may lengthen or shorten the time if necessary.

    I'll post up the winner in the following Top Prospect thread.

    VOTE 2020

    (you can see that I'm very very bored)


    Edit: Switching the poll to 2 days instead of 3

    If you're not voting for VV here, you're just wrong.

    It's really hard to ignore the season that Nardella is having. It was a toss up between him and VV and Nardella has just been consistently solid all season long once he got into the lineup.

    Wow, surprised Nardella got six votes. His stock went up really fast. Clearly the offensive production is there. I’m curious to see more of him now. For his supporters out there: what do you see his upside as?

    I am curious, can a 4'9'' 154 lbs player play D in NHL?

    Bottom pairing Dman who can QB a PP.

    He’s smaller in size but doesn’t play scared. Has a swagger to his game. Once he was inserted into Hershey’s lineup with all the injuries he never came out. With all the competition down there, that’s impressive in itself. He’s also been very comfortable playing RD when needed and doesn’t miss a beat. He’s obviously not going to be a shutdown guy but his D zone play isn’t what you’d expect from and undersized offensive dman.

    He deserves the rise in the rankings

    Yeah, this makes sense. That’s about what I would have expected for upside. I had heard pretty consistently that his addition to the Hershey power play was sited as a really turning point for Hershey’s big increase in power play productivity.

    It’s good to hear about his feistiness though. Not surprisingly, most folks with doubts about him, will have questions about his size, so it’s good to hear he has been able to hold his own. That’s a good point about the competition down there. He had to beat out a lot of players for playing time and he did it as an AHL rookie, albeit one with a full college hockey career under his belt.

    Oh come on. 4 feet 9 inches? No need to be smarmy about his size
