The Washington Capitals are once again the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs, after a long and well-publicized rebuilding effort centered around young talent. Whether they have postseason success or not, it's clear their rebuilding effort was successful. Two other teams in town -- the Wizards and the Nationals -- are arguably in the early stages of similar rebuilding effort. Will they also be successful?
That's the question Scott Jackson and Mike Prada discuss in this week's episode of SB Nation Radio on 106.7 The Fan. What is the glass half-full outlook for both teams? Which one is closer to getting to where the Capitals are right now?
We also talk the Redskins and the NFL Draft with Shawn Zobel of DraftHeadquarters.com, who consistently is accurate with his mock draft projections. Hear where he thinks the Redskins are leaning as the NFL Draft approaches. Also, we talk to Michael Lee of the Washington Post about the Wizards' season and Byron Kerr of MASNSports.com about the beginning of the Nationals' season.
You can listen to the show Friday night after the Capitals game at 11 p.m. on 106.7 The Fan. Here are the segments.
