      For articles or news that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriately label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].

      3. All trades, signings, rumours and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough.

      4. Clearly misrepresenting the contents of your thread or posting false Trades/Signings/Acquisitions to send the forum into a frenzy will be taken very seriously and will result in an automatic suspension.

      5. Please put all proposals into the proposals forum and NOT this forum. Proposals found in this forum will be moved or deleted without warning.

      6. Please report any threads or messages that violate these or other board rules to the administrators or moderators() Do not respond by posting spammy messages such as 'IBTL', and 'LOCK AND BAN', or by attacking other users. The report button is located to the bottom left of every post.

The Washington Capitals have signed forward Filip Forsberg to a three-year, entry-level contract, vice president and general manager George McPhee announced today. Forsberg will earn $832,500 at the NHL level and $70,000 at the AHL level.

Forsberg, 17, was drafted by Washington in the first round (11th overall) of the 2012 NHL Draft last month in Pittsburgh. He was listed as the top-ranked European skater heading into the draft according to NHL Central Scouting. Forsberg was the youngest player on Team Sweden at the 2012 World Junior Championships, helping his team capture their first World Junior gold medal since 1981 by recording one assist in six tournament games.

Steal of the draft?

Although I despise Washington due to Ovie, who is very over rated, I can't help believe this was a complete steal. Hopefully he'll take the 'C' from Ovie.

I think he'll be a bust but I was surprised to see him drop out of the top 10.

* I don't see him being a threat aka Zherdev.

I was so surprised to find out he dropped out of the top 10. Kind of jealous WSH got him :/

I wanted him :(

Forsberg - Backstrom - Ovechkin would be a pretty sick line in a few years though

Thanks for putting his first name in too, unlike some of the smart asses who will leave that out.

A 17 year old kid take the C from the most dominant player since the lockout? Let's see how long it takes Forsberg to make the NHL first.

Ovie is not the most dominant player since the lock out. Lidstrom, Crosby, Malkin, Toews, Datsyuk, Etc have put together a better body of work and have won cups.

You'd have to be a real hater to not accept that Ovie is at least Top 3 in a 'most dominant since the lockout' list. Cups aside - they are a team success, not an individual one - only Crosby from your list can match Ovie's production, showmanship and DOMINATION. He's been electric ever since he entered the league - meanwhile, Captain Serious may have won a cup, but he's not exciting, has zero personality, and hasn't put up nearly as many points as Ovie. Ovie has dominated - very few can say that.

Ok, I'll bite. Tell me how he has been more dominant than Malkin, Datsyuk, Lidstrom?
