I'd say after 3 offseasons a sucessful team has some very promising young players at many of the key positions....minimum. Most of our young promising guys are injured all of the time and we don't have that many to begin with. They haven't drafted well overall.

Turnarounds in the NFL don't have to take as long as you're suggesting. That said, in 3 years with a healthy RG3 and better drafting, I think this team is a contender anyway unless they somehow get worse at drafting.

George McPhee....The Teflon GM. 15 years of failure and counting....

6 - Number of playoff series the Capitals have won since George McPhee took over as General Manager in 1997 (which makes him the third-longest-tenured GM in the League), three of which came in McPhee's first season on the job.
