Suter sounds nice, but a bit scary to think what kind of money GMGM would throw at him.. Still, overall it looks to me like i the offseason there will be plenty of cap space to maneuver with, decent trading chips.. should be fine, I guess.

As for this year, too bad Semin, Green.. and Ovi have all been iffy.. hard to imagine the Caps really contending without these guys on top of their game.. hopefully they can get it sorted out.. and at least not commit to anything long term with Semin/Green at anything like their current salaries.. give their money to Chimera
How does this sound?

Alexander Ovechkin ($9.538m) / Nicklas Backstrom ($6.700m) / Troy Brouwer ($2.350m)
Evgeny Kuznetsov ($0.900m) / Marcus Johansson ($0.900m) / Alexander Semin ($4.500m)
Jason Chimera ($1.750m) / Brooks Laich ($4.500m) / Joel Ward ($3.000m)
Mathieu Perreault ($0.825m) / Jeff Halpern ($0.825m) / Matt Hendricks ($0.825m)
/ Jay Beagle ($0.700m)

Ryan Suter ($7.500m) / Mike Green ($5.500m)
Karl Alzner ($1.285m) / John Carlson ($4.000m)
John Erskine ($1.500m) / Dmitri Orlov ($0.900m)

Michal Neuvirth ($1.150m) / Braden Holtby ($0.637m)

CAP SPACE (21-man roster): $4,280,428

Erskine might not be the ideal 6D, but there's plenty of room to sign another one.
