This Washington Capitals mailbag features questions about position battles, Kuznetsov, Backstrom, Schmidt, Chorney, Johansson, Crosby, Ovechkin, and more.

The Washington Capitals still have some questions despite their strong 6-1-0 start. They have some position battles going on. Head coach Barry Trotz is human. Ergo, he has probably made some mistakes. There’s an eternal debate over who’s the better player: Alex Ovechkin or Sidney Crosby

There’s also a bit of a debate over who is the better center right now between Evgeny Kuznetsov and Nicklas Backstrom. Finally, there’s been much discussion over whether Nate Schmidt or Taylor Chorney should be the sixth defenseman. There might not be a definitive yes or no answer to these questions.
