List Rules Vote for the players you think were the best Capitals based on their time on the ice for Washington, not necessarily their popularity

Some of the greatest Capitals in team history are also some of the most recognizable faces in the league. Many Capitals have taken home individual honors, even when the team itself has faltered. If you want hall of fame players, the Capitals have them. Does the name Braden Holtby ring a bell? In addition to Holtby, players like Mike Green, Phil Housely, and Ken Klee are further proof of the great players in history who have scored for the Washington Capitals. The list also includes newbies who have shown their skill on the ice, from Alex Ovechkin to Nickolas Backstrom.

Who are some of the greatest Washington Capitals of all time? That's not an easy question, especially when you consider who has played for the team. But it's up to you to decide who are the best players to play for the Capitals. Are these guys the greatest hockey players of all time or even the best players today? That's up to you to decide but for now, take a look and vote up and down your favorite Capitals of all time.
