The Caps still have no Cups. They recently join a very unfortunate club: the 40 plus club. They joined 4 other teams who have gone 40+ years without winning a Stanley Cup. The club is now made up of the St. Louis Blues (48 seasons), the Toronto Maple Leafs (48), the Buffalo Sabres (45), the Vancouver Canucks (45), the Washington Capitals (41) and they were also recently joined by the poor Philadelphia Flyers in their 40th year.
As a franchise, Washington has won the Presidents’ Trophy twice, won their division 9 times and won their conference once. They have seen a number of great players over the years. This includes names like Doug Mohns, Bill Clement, Yvon Labre, Guy Charron, Ryan Walter, Rod Langway, Kevin Hatcher, Dale Hunter, Adam Oates, Steve Konowalchuk, Brendan Witt, Steve Konowalchuk, Jeff Halpern, Chris Clark, and Alexander Ovechkin.

Bet On Washington Capitals Games
The NHL’s salary cap does a reasonable job of keeping quality players across the league. As for general rules of thumb, betting the underdog isn’t quite as risky as it is in other sports, even though two teams may be way apart in the league standings.
As for the Caps, they had a huge regular season, then ended up losing to the eventual champions in the second round. A lot of people have said this team has the talent, but question whether or not they have the heart to win it all. They have a history of blowing 3-1 leads in games, and series in their highly questionable history.
Braden Holtby has proven he’s the guy in the pipes for this team. But he needs his team to stand tall around him, and not put too much pressure on him to be the best goaltender in the world, every single night.
And as long as Ovechkin and Bäckström are on the powerplay, this team can be the best on hockey. But they don’t look like champions.
