Probably so...but he's also somewhat redundant if he's asking for $6M+. I'd be inclined to keep a pretty open mind on offers for him, though unfortunately I doubt he alone would bring back a player of equal impact. Nonetheless, the right offer could make for a team-wide improvement.

Bettman said recently there's a good chance the cap remains the same next season, likely assuming the NHLPA invokes the inflator once again. It's early but the league seems optimistic at this point. Either way, though, the Caps need to be much more shrewd from this point forward in handing out contracts (both in term & dollar).
