I've only been here two years but I've had the chance to dig into the hockey of the area, naturally enough as I'm immersed in hockey myself. I lived for 42 years in the Washington DC metro area where, except for a brief stretch in the early 2000s, we've had a strong, stable franchise for around 30 years. The early years were a mess to be sure but all that changed in the '80s. And that's an area were there are no junior teams and closest the closest minor league team is 3 hours away. The Caps are pretty much it for hockey in the area I'm from.
