Nylander's huge contract will be up and so will Three-or-more's. Also, the rest of the players signed in the off-season, Morrison and Knuble, were one year contracts. So they should have plenty of room to re-sign Semin and Backstrom (both contracts are up at season's end). Which is also another reason why he would not re-sign Brashear. He didn't want to sign him for more than a year. The Washington GM has been preparing Cap space to keep Semin and Backstrom.
Although, Semin and his agent did threaten to go to the KHL. Semin might go there regardless of pay. It is rumored that he does not like the States. And has still not bothered learning English.
