Washington is capped out this season. Next would/could be a different story. The Caps have Federov's $4m deal and Kozlov's $2.5m deal expiring. They have Nylander to trade which would be easier in the off season.

Moving Nylander along would open up cap space for a Kubina line contract. My guess is the Federov resigns at 60-70% of that base salary with a bonus structure to achieve his $4m if he plays 80 games. Morrisonn and Fleischmann's salary would come off the books.

There are many ways for the Caps to fit in Kubina. Personally, I think its Pronger that McPhee wants. But Kubina has won a cup. The only other issue is that he makes as much as Mike Green does and I am not sure how that fits into the Capitals salary structure.
