As the offseason continues teams continue to assess their teams.  We as fans also assess our teams and begin to look towards fantasy hockey. 

As for the Washington Capitals, we know a couple of the players that are going to be looked at us to join our teams, but who are some of the others that are overvalued, undervalued, and who could be a sleeper on the team.

Overvalued players tend to get us excited and then produce nothing in the end and it seems almost like a wasted pick midway through the season and if you try to trade them, the value just isn’t there.  For the Capitals, the overvalued player based on NHL.com’s rankings is Mike Green.

Here is what NHL.com had to say on Mike Green:

Overvalued: Mike Green Based on his point potential as a defenseman, Green remains a borderline top-100 fantasy asset. That said, he’s entering a contract year and it won’t be easy for him to flip the switch and return to elite form. He’s a lock to put up 40-plus points and 200-plus shots if he avoids injury, but his points-per-game average from 2007-08 to 2009-10 (.91) has plummeted over the past four seasons (.51). With Niskanen and John Carlson in the picture for power-play time, it appears Green’s days as a 70-plus-point defenseman are long gone.
