The Capitals won the Cup. Now, it’s the offseason.

NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-Washington Capitals at Columbus Blue Jackets Russell LaBounty-USA TODAY Sports

Well, folks, welcome to the offseason.

The Washington Capitals won the Stanley Cup. Congratulations to them. Alex Ovechkin’s reaction to winning the Cup was great, and it was great to see TJ Oshie share a moment with the Cup with his dad. If you haven’t seen his interview, seek it out. It’s a tear jerker.

The Columbus Blue Jackets have been in offseason mode for awhile, having lost to the aforementioned Capitals. Here’s what to expect in the next few weeks:

June 15: Buyout window opens

June 20: NHL Awards Presentation

June 22-23: NHL Draft

July 1: Free Agency Begins

Is it October yet?
