15. Washington Capitals

Previous: No. 15

The Caps are absolutely there right now. Just right there. You barely even notice they exist. They’re currently the second wild card in the East, but Braden Holtby is not quite pushing them over the hump. Not that the offense is stellar, but Holtby has been average with an average defense in front of him.
