Again, considering that we have just sent down Orlov and signed Schmidt, keeping (and re-signing) Hillen just looks dumb.
Said it before, it's a depth signing. Team has used 12 different defenseman in 35+ games this season, with 6 of those d-men missing more than one game due to injuries.

Looking forward, subtract the likes of Hamrlik and Poti and hopefully Schultz for next season, you are down to 9 d-men (to include Hillen) that played this season. Last year the Caps used 10 different d-men over the course of the season. So Caps besides the 9 d-men (Schilling's included in this bunch) that they used this season, will be able to draw on the likes of Wey and Schmidt for next year.
