Yeah, not like he's an unknown/prospect.

Indeed. If Williams was firm with going with the highest bidder then Oshie makes sense. I still hate 8 years but I guess they can deal with that down the road.

I agree he took less, but he didn't settle for $800K+$200K bonuses like Sharp this year or $1M like Campbell last year.

Agreed.

If Shattenkirk is really getting almost 7m, then it's crazy what ex Caps are going to make, and what last years team looks like now $$$$ on paper. Williams and Alzner = 9m. Shattenkirk would make them all close to 16m. With still Winnik to determine, and Schmidt.

Who else are we losing? Maybe Grubauer.

Current goalie openings are Buffalo and that's about it.
Wouldn't be in such a rush to move Grubauer now. The offer has to be the one the Caps want and not what they settle for. Who knows, Fleury gets another concussion in Vegas or some other team's goalie goes down, there will become a demand for Grubauer.

Perhaps they could use less good cops, anyway.

Vegas has Pickard as the back-up/heir apparent. If they didn't trust Pickard over Grubauer, they would have just picked Grubauer.


I agree that ideally they should wait for a buyer to emerge (potentially next off-season), but the salary cap may force their hand.

Vlasic removed from the 2018 UFA pool. 8 years @ $7M. Vlasic is great, but that's a LOT of dough.

In the mean time, Trotz has to increase Gruby's workload this coming season as it should only enhance his value and I think less of a regular season work load for Holtby will only benefit him come the playoffs (if we make them).

Wingels to Chicago on a 1 year.


A lot of cheap/short term guys getting nabbed early. Becoming clear that Washington really is just going to fill the ranks with their AHL kids. Not surprising, but it's reality now.

Probably?

That is insane money. He picked a team that was trying to reach the cap ceiling and got paid. Good on him.

Honestly the above is the only reason I will even tune into Caps hockey next season, to see the kids. I'm excited.

While Carlson is struggling with stats and injuries GMBM could sign him for ~6M or a bit more... right about now.

This is a move to do. You can still trade him one for one if you find a club wanting to trade their "Parayko" (why would they do it btw?).

I mean, 8 years and 6,25M... Smth like that.

Buffalo signs Chad Johnson. Already has Ullmark for #3.

Doesn't seem like there's going to be a buyer for Grubauer
