If it doesn't work out, buy him out and part ways. Even with the emergence of Oleksy and Kundratek, I'm not thrilled with our RD depth given that it looks like Orlov is going to be forced to play the left side and Green will only be healthy for 50% of the season.
He has to be on your reserve list by the time of the trade deadline before the offseason you're buying him out.

So yeah, the Caps could do that risking nothing but Ted's money. But I don't see why; the potential payoff is so ridiculously small. Better to let another team (the Marlies most likely) showcase him, then sign him for cheap in the offseason if for some reason you like what you see.
