Throughout their 39 year history the Washington Capitals have undergone several uniform changes. Some have been better than others.

In the early days of the franchise, the Caps uniform was very much a slice of Americana. Regardless of whether the Caps were home or away, the uniform had red, white and blue with stars and stripes to boot. The uniform spelled out the word "Capitals" and turned the "t" into a hockey stick.

Around the 1995-96 season, the Caps implemented their eagle logo and completely abandoned the earlier design. The eagle closely resembled a bird of prey swooping down on its helpless victim.

The change in design seemed to change the fortunes of the Caps for a while and in 1998 the Caps reached the Stanley Cup Final for the first and only time in their history.

Around the 2000-01 season, the word "Capitals" for the first time in team history did not appear on their primary jersey.

The Caps, like many teams, had an alternate uniform they wore. Quite frequently they would break out their black jerseys with the actual Capitol building appearing on the jersey.

For the 2007-08 season, the Caps returned to their roots, to a great extent, and brought back a variation of the original design. It had a much more streamlined and sleek look to it with some additional features added in.

So, which Washington Capitals' uniforms have been the best?
