Top 3 needs for the Washington Capitals in free agency.

The Washington Capitals failed in 2020 to deliver a second Stanley Cup. Their season came to an abrupt end almost a week ago at the hands of the New York Islanders in five games. What followed was the dismissal of head coach Todd Reirden.

The Caps will obviously have to look for a new coach. If you want to see some good veteran options we’ve got that for you here. Besides needing a new coach there are also some free agents the Caps should have on their shopping list.
