If the Capitals actually trade Nylander, all they need is cap space. If there is room for a top 6 forward, they clearly want to get Bourque in the lineup. They would likely want the flexibility to start using Alzner after the first of the year.

Then after seeing what the injuries look like and what the developement of the roster looks like, McPhee will have the cap space to land a rental or two to fill the voids.

The Caps don't need a roster player.
