Late to the party, but yeah, happy to see this re-signing and the combo of dollars and one year. With the CBA ending and his 35+ status, I assumed he'd sign a one year deal, but wondered what the cap hit would be. (addn: this is the high end of what I hoped for, but I was hoping for 1.5-2 given all we know, so this works on a one year deal)

Random not really related, but from a cap math perspective from this season to next season: Semin's cap hit goes up 700,000 and Knuble's goes down 800,000 so that works pretty well.

The lack of a bonus cushion next year, hurts Knuble and the Caps to an extent. Obviously, a contract with a performance bonus on a 35+ 1 year was an option, but of limited value to the team or player if he was willing to sign for this amount. (value would have been only paying out what player 'earned' and for player, possible additional money depending on structure)
