    What if … the Capitals didn't hire Dale Hunter and Adam Oates? (NHL Alternate History)

    Note: It’s the NHL Alternate History project! We’ve asked fans and bloggers from 31 teams to pick one turning point in their franchise’s history and ask ‘what if things had gone differently?’ Trades, hirings, firings, wins, losses, injuries … all of it. How would one different outcome change the course of history for an NHL team? Today: Jason Rogers of Japers’ Rink on the Washington Capitals. In the summer of 1974, some of this frozen water eventually made its way to Washington, D.C. by way of NHL expansion.
