I'd much rather see a bunch of other guys leave town before him.
So much so that you would pay him $2-3 mil per for term?

I don't see how Volpatti makes Hendricks expendable at all. I haven't seen him be anything but invisible for us. And Latta hasn't proven anything yet. It's just a simple matter of finances. Like others have said, Hendricks will get more on the open market than the Caps can (and should) afford to pay him.

I'd rather not have him take that much cap space up since he is ultimately a fourth liner, but I'd rather see him making within that range than ward making 3 million or poti still being on payroll or Green making 6 million or Schultz making anything.

Poti isn't even on the payroll brah. There are 500 guys who can play on the 4th line and 300 of them are probably your typical canadian farm boy types who give the best post-game quotes.. speaking of which, we have Liach and Brouwer for that already.

You should really be questioning the logic behind Liach's cap hit. I'd rather have Raffi Torres at that cap hit.

Hendricks at Four years at $1.85. A lot less than the 2-3 mil people were estimating.

I sure am going to miss that guy.

Good luck in Nashville. Have fun rocking it Country style with Fischer and Underwood!

$1.85 is a lot less than $2? I'm happy for Hendricks getting that rate and term but there was no way the Caps would afford that rate for this coming season. Yeah, yeah, yeah there are tons of ways the Caps could 'make' room for anyone but other than the Schultz buyout that was never going to happen.

It's still a lot more than you should be paying a 4th line winger.

in this past playoffs ward was tied for the team lead in scoring and Hendricks didn't have a point. the previous year ward was 5th on the team in scoring with the series winner in game 7 v boston and Hendricks was 14th.

ward's game fits the playoffs and he delivers. Hendricks not so much.

Hendricks was heart and soul kinda guy, but that said. His role is interchangeable and cheaper at that....miss him but best of luck. No sense in handcuffing another 2 MM for multiple years for a 4th line role.
