Adams was dealt again in the summer of 1983, this time to the Washington Capitals. While the Whalers were a woefully bad team (just 19 wins in 1982-83), the Capitals were one of the deepest squads in the league, and he found it more difficult to get icetime. In his first two years in Washington, he scored just 8 goals in 108 games, and was demoted briefly to the AHL. However, he established himself as a key member of the team in 1985-86, and put up surprising numbers with 18 goals and 56 points, along with 152 PIM. He continued to perform well over the next two seasons, posting totals of 14 and 15 goals while providing his usual physical presence.

For the 1988-89 season, he was moved to the defending Stanley Cup Champion Edmonton Oilers. However, he struggled to find a niche with the Oilers, scoring just 4 goals in 49 games, and was dealt again at the trade deadline, this time to the Vancouver Canucks. This created one of the more unique situations in NHL history, as the Canucks' lineup already featured star winger Greg 'Gus' Adams. As a result, the elder Adams would thereafter be known as 'Greg C. Adams'. Regular Season Final standings Note: W = Wins, L = Losses, T = Ties, GF= Goals For, GA = Goals Against, Pts = Points ...
