We miss hockey quite a lot right now, so we decided to rank the top 10 playoff performers in Washington Capitals history.

For criteria, we considered a mixture of overall production, longevity with the team and clutch moments, with a little recency bias toward players who contributed to the Capitals‘ only Stanley Cup.

Thinking back on the Washington Capitals’ 2018 run and considering their otherwise spotty record in the Stanley Cup Playoffs begs the question: Who are the best playoff performers in franchise history?

There are 130 major college football teams, spread across 41 states and competing in 10 conferences, save for a handful of independents. The goal is to have all those teams start the upcoming season at the same time - whether that’s around Labor Day as scheduled or later - and play the same number of games. With each passing day it is becoming apparent the COVID-19 pandemic is going to make that goal difficult to achieve.
