Short History of Washington Capitals Hockey Team
The hockey team of Washington Capitals is one of the members of the Metropolitan Division of Eastern Conference in National Hockey League (NHL). At the time of their founding in the year 1974, the “Caps” won one championship in the conference in reaching the Stanley Cup Finals in the year 1998 and able to achieve division titles of eight. The team moved in the rink of home hockey in 1997 from the Capital Centre into the new Verizon Centre found in Washington D.C. The team was owned by Ted Leonsis, the AOL executive since 1999. The team was revitalized through drafting of the star players like Mike Green, Alexander Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom. They also hired the hall of famer head coach Adam Oates, who also the previous capital player of Washington. In 2009-2010 Capitals gain the victory of the first ever franchise of the President’s trophy, being a team of most points by the end of regular season.
With the combination of 30 teams between WHA and NHL, the availability of the talent was thinly stretched. The Washington Capitals had small number of players having a professional experience that resulted to a disadvantage. The team did not influence the survival against the rival league of their plans.
The inaugural season of the team was dreadful inspite of the standard expansion. They finished away with worst record of the league in 8-67-5. The team’s eight winnings are considered to be the fewest in the playing team of NHL. They also made records for the most consecutive road losses.
In 1999, the Washington Capitals went on with the back to back titles of the Southeast Division in 2000-2001 but both of the years lost their first round of playoffs in the Pittsburgh Penguins. After the season of 2000-2001, Adam Oates made a demand in trading yet the management stripped him and refused Oates’ team captaincy.
