Description

From the depths of the National Hockey League basement in 2003, to the league’s most recognizable, successful, and offensively potent team just seven years later, this book chronicles the rebranding and reemergence of the Washington Capitals. Fueled by the arrival of charismatic Russian superstar Alexander Ovechkin, as well as other gifted young players, the Caps have transformed themselves from a chronically underachieving organization with an eroding fan base into an organization that players, media, and fans respect. Featuring original interviews with Capitals players, coaches, and staff from the past decade, including team owner Ted Leonsis, as well as the expertise of dozens of the NHL’s most informed media personalities, this work examines how the once-anonymous hockey franchise became not only a success in Washington, but around North America and the world.
