Players ranging from Kolzig to Lang to Bondra and then Gonchar will be made available IF the Caps cannot deal Jagr. If they become convinced that they are stuck with Jagr, I suspect the Caps will deal their veterans.
All potential salary dumps are on hold until the case of the largest potential salary dump of them all on the Capitals' roster is decided.
If Jagr can be traded, I doubt the Caps will deal Gonchar. They may still deal Bondra, they may deal Nylander, they may deal Kolzig. The fates of Lang and Gonchar, however, are probably tied up in the team's ability to deal Jagr and how much of his contract the Caps are picking up if he is dealt.
All else, in terms of big contracts, is pretty much on hold until some kind of resolution on Jagr's case. Dump Jagr, and some of the other veterans may be retained.
