Capitals raise Eastern Conference regular season banners

“Unless I missed the addition previously, it would seem we’ve added two new banners to the rafters on F Street tonight,” the team’s radio man, John Walton, wrote on Twitter.


“Hopefully these banners come down sooner than later and the next one that gets raised says “Stanley Cup Champions” on it,” Capitals Outsider wrote.

“If we ran the Verizon Center, we’d adhere to the late Red Auerbach’s guidelines for banners: championships only,” SB Nation DC decreed.



Still, the general sentiment seemed to be the fewer banners for anything other than the real title, the better.
