As we celebrate the Capitals' 40th anniversary, let's take a moment to...
Hamrlik’s Most Memorable Moment

Roman Hamrlik didn’t have a very memorable stint with the Washington Capitals. He was brought in as a veteran blueliner amidst high expectations for the 2011-12 season, only for the team to collapse and play coin-flip hockey down the stretch and through the second round of the playoffs.
The Caps waived him back in March. Then, the 38-year-old was claimed off waivers by the New York Rangers. Today, he announced his retirement. We here at Caps Outsider wanted to post a list of memorable Hamrlik moments. After searching, we finally found one. He scored the only goal in the Caps’ Game 7 loss to the Rangers in last year’s playoffs. We’re going to assume that’s what impressed the Rangers enough to pick him up.
Thanks for that, Mr. Hamrlik, and best of luck in retirement.
