Caps contracts update: Caps have 44 players under contract, including the 1 remaining RFA (Carlson); not counting Forsberg or Wilson

HBH vet update: looks like Hershey could start the season with 6 vets and 2 tweener vets (5 vets and 1 tw vet allowed to dress per game), but plenty of time between now and the start of the season to see things play out.
My initial thoughts on this are that Aucoin is a depth signing for Washington, or another move is going to be made in Hershey to accomodate him. Hershey dealt with the 6 veterans last year and eventually Richmond was shipped out so I doubt this happens again. I could see McNeil being moved because of the Stafford signing and Hershey having a good amount of puck movers already, but I can't figure out which veteran would be moved considering the only vet on a Washington contract is Potulny. It will be interesting to see what happens
