Somebody call me when the Peter Bondra/Sergei Gonchar/Joey Juneau/Adam Oates/Craig Berube/Mike Eagles/Olaf Kolzig Capitals uniforms make their return...

You know what’s funny? The year the Caps won the Cup is the year they temporarily dumped the retro sweaters. Maybe it’s a sign to leave this dull look in the past and have a modern-style third/a throwback to the slate blue sweaters?
