Look for Evgeny Kuznetsov to play more on the Capitals' first line even when Nicklas Backstrom is healthy.
Kuznetsov thrived alongside Alexander Ovechkin and T.J. Oshie when Backstrom was hurt to start last season. Caps' coach Barry Trotz seems willing to play the youngster on the top line in an alternating fashion with Backstrom. "He’s [Kuznetsov] a dominant player now," Trotz said. "I think he’s got a high confidence. It gives us great flexibility to do whatever thing we would want. I think on matchups, it’ll free some stuff for us, so we can do a number of different things with our roster. Look for Backstrom to play some games centering the second line featuring Justin Williams and Andre Burakovsky. Obviously this bodes well for Kuztnesov's fantasy value and may hurt Backstrom's a bit.
