The Caps probably could do a lot with 6.7 million in free agency, but how aggressive would they be, even with that extra money?
If I could shift the conversation for a second, here is the tentative team make-up next year BEFORE resigning any players, signing any free agents, or calling up any new players:

Ovechkin - Backstrom - Knuble
Fehr - MoJo - Semin
Chimera - ?? - ??
Hendricks - ?? - ??

Alzner - Carlson
Schultz - Green
Erskine - Wideman


- That's quite a few forward spots that need to be filled, and the Caps have roughly 12 million to fill it, assuming the cap rises to ~ 62 million.
- This roster is banking on Fehr being healthy and Knuble continuing to produce at age 39.
- The D isn't particularly strong IMO. I think Schultz is better served on a bottom pairing role.

It will be interesting to see what they do with the bottom 6 forwards...
