    Bennett, Grigorenko, Chiasson among notable players to not receive qualifying offers

    The Washington Capitals were birthed into this world in 1974, making them older than, say, Allen Iverson. Since that happy day, the Capitals have won zero games in the Stanley Cup finals. Not one. Their fans are loyal, wise, funny, slightly crazy, and very very scarred. It’s hard to imagine just how much joy and relief would be granted to those fans if their team finally, after more than 40 years, actually won a Stanley Cup. It’s so hard to imagine that sometimes you don’t even bother imagining it, any more than you’d imagine seeing palm trees on Wisconsin Ave. or a rush hour jaunt down 66 that didn’t make you want to rip off your eyelashes or the Wizards making a draft pick.
