5 Biggest Villains in Washington Capitals History

Throughout their somewhat tortured history, many a player has come along that can rightfully be considered a villain of the Washington Capitals.

That is not to say these players were criminals or outlaws. Heck, none of these villains could really be considered bad people at all.

Yet when you look at the short-term and long-term damage these players did to the Caps franchise, they are every bit as villainous as the Joker or Voldemort or the Matrix or Darth Vader or... well, you get the point.

You can mix and match members of the New York Islanders, New York Rangers, Philadelphia Flyers, New Jersey Devils and Pittsburgh Penguins during the late 1980s through the late 1990s and start naming names that make Caps fans cringe to this very day.

Go up to a long-time Caps fan and say names like Denis Potvin, Kelly Hrudey, Pat Verbeek or Bob Brooke and watch the reaction.

And yet, none of those four guys ranks in my top five biggest villains in the history of the Washington Capitals.

So who, in my opinion, has done the most damage to our beloved franchise?

My friends, come with me to a dark place where we shall brave the blackness together.
