It could, provided that the team offers no salary coming back, for either this year or next year. If it does, the Caps are better off paying Nylander not to play for them and saving that cap space.

This is a critical point, because that is how they pay for the raises to Fleischmann, to Backstrom, and to Semin. It is more important to the Caps to eat that salary and reap the cap savings than to find a taker.

If a team wants Nylander and is willing to send no salary back, though, then sure. I just see that possibility as rather remote, rather than "pretty likely."
