Followed a year later by the class of: Laich, Gordon, Semin, and Morrisonn
Isn't that sad?
Unless you guys can find someone else in there with an earlier start date. Sorry. I just discovered this site after the note about Varly being in 22nd place for the Caps in tems of wins.... and i'm obsessed with it now.
Other weird things I learned:
* After just BARELY one season, Theo's #8 in all time wins.
* JIm Carey (remember that guy) has more SO than Beaupre and played half the games
* Chris Clark has more short handed goals than anyone else actively with the Caps... .... .. WTF???
* Chris Simon had exactly 666 PIM's with the Caps. I might actually make a comment about how cool that is if Simon wasn't a douche sanwich.
* OV is a lifetime +28. Backstrom +30. Semin is -1
* OV has barely played 1/3 of Bondra's seasons as a cap (not just seasons but in games played) and it says his TOI is almost the same? That doesn't make any sense. Am I reading that wrong or is something with that stat a little messed up? (Maybe they didnt record TOI until halfway through the 90's??)
* Bruce's win% as a coach in the regular season is WAY ahead of anyone else by a landslide but has had (virtually) the same luck in the playoffs as anyone else
* McPhee should have grovelled to keep Gonchar... oh wait.. crap.. Sorry .. accidentally mixed in an opinion with the stats. Of course I don't really know the history about that. The year he left was the year I least payed attention to hockey.
Is it just me, or does it seem like the Caps have a record of losing legendary D men right during their prime. Makes me fear if we're going to lose Greenie one day.
