Washington is one of the most stable teams in the league, making the playoffs every year without much trouble, but this season could be the first for many years, when the Capitals will remain outside of the cup battles. Key players are not getting younger, they are increasingly injured and there is no money to spare to sign top-notch rookies. Nevertheless, at the start of the current regular season the Red and Blues have not played too badly, winning five games and losing six, which allows them to sit eighth in the East standings.
Vegas Golden Knights
Vegas was another team that managed to make the playoffs every year, but last season, the Knights embarrassed themselves by not being in the Cup battles for the first time in history. After that, Peter DeBoer retired for Bruce Cassidy to take his place. Under his guidance the Black and Gold started the current regular season very well. They have already achieved eight wins in ten games against two losses, and the current winning streak amounts to four games. All of this allows them to lead the Western Conference standings.
