Ranking the 1974-1975 Capitals:  #1


Mikemarson_medium


The Ranking the Caps series was so much fun, I think it'd be fun to rank all the Capitals throughout history, year by year, starting with the first year.  Hockey Reference lists 42 players who contributed to the 1974-1975 Capitals, and we'll rank every one of them and then move on to the 1975-76 squad.  The rules are just a little different since we're ranking past performance -- the question this time is who made the most valuable contribution to the team?

Was it Mike Marson, he of the outstanding mustache, whose two game winning goals accounted for 1/4 of the team's victories?  Or Ron Low, who was in net for all of the Caps victories and who even shut a team out once (amazing given the team's defensive corps).  Tommy "Bomber" Williams who led the team in goals and assists, and who was the genius behind the trash can story -- one of the greatest anecdotes in hockey history?  Or puck-moving defenseman Yvon Labre, 2nd on the team in assists with 23, whose number 7 is now forever enshrined in the rafters? 

To the poll!
