General manager George PcPhee and coach Adam Oates lost their jobs with the Capitals last weekend after the club failed to make the playoffs for the first time since 2007. McPhee’s contract was up and the team decided not to offer him a new one following 17 years as the GM, which included the drafting of star Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom.

"We were left with the overall impression that the team wasn't trending toward being able to compete for a Stanley Cup," Capitals owner Ted Leonsis said in a news conference at the club's arena. "And that was just a clear signal and why it was time to make those changes."

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Peter Laviolette and Barry Trotz are both 3/1 favorites, respectively, to become the next full-time head coach of the Capitals. John Stevens, Guy Boucher and Mike Haviland are all 11/2, respectively, while Kevin Dineen, Phil Housley and Glen Gulutzan are all 9/1, respectively. Mike Keenan at 10/1 and Jeff Blashill at 16/1 are two long shots to earn the job.

The Capitals finished this season with the ninth-most points in the Eastern Conference, which left them one spot out of a playoff berth.
