Washington Capitals Team Info
Coming into the season preparing for a comeback, Capitals seats are a sound investment for any hockey fan. Though the Capitals didn’t do the greatest in last year’s standings, finishing second to last in the Eastern Conference, they have made several big deals in the off-season. Led by Head Coach Glen Hanlon, the Caps will step out onto the ice with a few new tricks that will hopefully take them further up.
Added on as an expansion team in the 1974-75 season, the Caps saw numerous poor seasons before really making a name for themselves in the league. In fact, in their first season they lost 67 out of 80 games, winning only one while on the road. Finally, in 1982 two major events turned the team’s luck around. First, they hired 33-year-old David Poile as their General Manager. In turn, Poile’s first move was to make one of the biggest trades in franchise history. On September 9, he traded veterans Ryan Walter and Rick Green in exchange for Rod Langway, Brian Engblom, Doug Jarvis, and Craig Laughlin. With the addition of these new players, the Caps made it to the playoffs for the first time in the 1982-83 season. It is arguable that this performance saved the team from being moved. After that, the team would make the playoffs for the next fourteen years in a row; however they didn’t see a championship title. Even the addition of hockey great Jaomir Jagr in 2001 was ineffective in bringing the team to top.
