A few weeks after the Capitals were eliminated from the playoffs, veteran right wing Mike Knuble was asked what kind of coach would be the perfect fit for the Caps.
Lets face it. If Adam Oates is going to be successful as the new coach of the Capitals, his first order of business will be forging a strong relationship with Alex Ovechkin.
Hours after getting his first head coaching job in the NHL, Adam Oates learned he's heading to the Hockey Hall of Fame.
Peter Bondra played parts of six seasons with Adam Oates in Washington and believes the 49-year-old future Hall of Famer is the perfect fit at the clubs next head coach.
The Capitals are expected to schedule a news conference later this afternoon announcing the hiring of Adam Oates as their next head coach, CSNWashington.com has learned.
