Results...

Since the opening of the 1999-2000 season, here are the cumulative records of the 28 teams that played in that season*:

Of those six clubs behind Washington in these rankings, half of them (NY Islanders, Pittsburgh, and Atlanta) have been in the playoffs; Chicago would make the top eight in the Western Conference if the season ended today. It is entirely possible, given the Caps' play so far this year, that three of those teams will pass Washington in this ranking by this season's end.

It has been a rough few years, hasn't it?

It has been the very picture of mediocrity, on average. On an annualized basis, the points the Caps have earned over this period equal 81.2 points per season.

Of course, averages being what they are, they can mask wide swings...the Caps were a 102-point team in the first year of this administration, then...
