THURSDAY’S BEST BET ON TELEVISION

Against San Jose, the Capitals try to end their four-game losing streak. 7 p.m., CSN

LOCAL POWER RANKINGS WHO’S GENERATING BUZZ IN THE D.C. AREA?

CARLOS ROGERS

The Redskins cornerback should be applauded for saying “it starts with ownership.” His point: This is a team in turmoil from top to bottom.

JOSE THEODORE

Who knew one of the bright spots for the Capitals so far would be their goaltending in general — and Theodore in particular?

GILBERT ARENAS

The NBA docked Arenas and the Wizards $25,000 apiece for his media boycott. If the NFL had a similar rule, the Redskins would be going broke.

RONNIE BELLIARD

The former Nationals infielder has hit .351 for the Dodgers down the stretch and started all three games in the sweep of St. Louis.

TYROD TAYLOR

The Virginia Tech QB is 24-for-32 for four touchdowns in his past two games as the Hokies remain in the national title hunt.

TWT FIVE REDSKINS 2010 FIRST-ROUND DRAFT PROJECTIONS

1. QB Colt McCoy, Texas (nfldraftdog.com) — “McCoy is a winner and was four-year starter at Texas. Arm strength is a concern though. The [Redskins] need a mobile QB with their suspect O-line.”

2. QB Jake Locker, Washington (walterfootball.com) — “The Redskins need a quarterback, and [owner Dan] Snyder loves going after big-name players, so this is a perfect match.”

3. LB Brandon Spikes, Florida (bleacherreport.com) — “He lives in his opponent’s backfield. Although critics would like to see more big plays out of Spikes, he has all the tools and talents to succeed.”

4. WR Dez Bryant, Oklahoma State (mockingthedraft.com) — “Bryant is a big, athletic receiver [who] knows how to get open and make people miss.”

5. QB Tony Pike, Cincinnati (sportingnews.com) — “With two-time Super Bowl winner Mike Shanahan ready to take over as coach, the first thing he’ll want is a quarterback to build around.”
