DEVELOPING: Washington Capitals Fire Coach and GM

Big changes are afoot for the floundering Washington Capitols hockey team.

The Caps, who feature one of hockey best players, Alexander Ovechkin, did not make the playoff this season.

And the casualties for that underachievement, team G.M George McPhee and coach Adam Oates were fired Saturday morning by team owner Ted Leonsis.

McPhee ran the team for 17-years and the team did have some success, winning some conference titles and making the playoffs 10-times.

As for Oates, he coached the team 2-seasons. This year the team was 38-30, but that was only enough to get them to 9th in an 8-team playoff system.

It seems to be the beginning of the new "next round" of changes to benefit Alex Ovechkin and the group of entertaining underachievers. Chuck Gormley and Jill Sorenson discuss the future...
