Poll: Who Will Be the Caps’ Fourth-Leading Scorer?

Posted August 3, 2011

Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom and Alexander Semin have been the top three scoring leaders on the Capitals for the past three seasons, but that fourth position – which Mike Green owned from 2008-2010 – typically tells a story about a player who ‘steps it up’ and deserves praise (while Ovie, Backie and Jizz are expected to be 1, 2 and 3). Last season, Brooks Laich notched 48 points as Mike Green struggled with injuries. However, Caps fans have unbridled optimism and are likely hoping for the fourth-leading scorer to once again get 70-80 points, which probably won’t happen with Laich. Now we ask: Who will it be?
