CBS Sports 633+ SHARES
Adam Oates and George McPhee are both out in Washington.
After 17 years as the Caps GM, George McPhee will not have his contract renewed.
Whenever a new GM is named, he will be just the third GM in the last 32 years for the Capitals as McPhee followed a long run by David Poile in DC.
Head coach Adam Oates is also out, but his run was nowhere near as long as McPhee's.
The next coach will be the fourth coach in four years for the Caps following Bruce Boudreau, Dale Hunter and Oates.
