The Caps have money but need to do the following - SIGN their own guys.
Huet (UFA)- hopefully for around 5-6 million
Green (RFA)- hopefully for around 5-6 million
Fedorov (UFA)- for around 2.5-3 million
Morrisson (RFA)- for around 2.5-3.5 million
Laich (RFA)- for around 1.75-2.25 million
If they manage to get everyone into the fold they will for all intents in purposes will be done with free agency. But the team will be pretty much ready to make a run deep in the playoffs.
Another veteran D would be nice but not at the expense of losing any of the aforementioned players.
If they could keep those guys and with the return of Michael Nylander and Chris Clark the team looks pretty solid. They essentially have 2 second lines.
Ovechkin - Backstrom - Kozlov
Semin - Fedorov/Nylander - Laich
Fehr - Nylander/Fedorov - Clark
Brashear - Steckel - Bradley/Gordon
Green - Morrisson
Poti - Schultz
Alzner - Jurcina
