They could do that. But if nobody picks him up, he'll still count against the cap because he was 35 in the year that his current contract started, and if someone picks him up on re-entry, the Caps will have half of Nylander's per annum taking up empty cap space for twice as long.

There's no easy answers for Washington and Nylander, as far as I can see.
