Langkow - NMC and possibly dealing with a career-ending injury
Kiprusoff - NMC with 5 more years on his contract. Varlamov is young, but seems like he's got the goods
Regehr - NMC and 3 more years. Great shut-down d-man, but relatively immobile and may not be what Washington needs on D
Sarich - 2 more years as an overpaid d-man that I don't think Washington needs

Semin - Impending UFA, $6 mil, but 40-goal scorer
Green - One of the premier young PMD in the league, signed for 2 more years after which he is an RFA, not a UFA
Varlamov - Seems like one of the better young goalies in the league. Has shown a ton of promise, cheap, and still an RFA in 1 year
Knuble - 35+ one year contract for less than $3 mil, but still puts up over 20 goals. Great leader.
Poti - 1 year left until UFA, not a bad guy to have around but not stellar (IMO)
Fehr - 24-year old 20+ goal scorer who is signed to good contract for 2 more year after which he is an RFA

All in all, as someone who is not a dedicated fan of either team, the Caps are getting royally reamed in this "deal".
Good evaluation except you forgot to add that Semin is as soft as a good toilet paper, Green cant play defense, Varlamov is unproven, Knuble and Poti are not better than a lot of available FAs and Fehr is relatively unproven as well
