The Washington Capitals have 47 players under NHL contract for the 2009-10 season out of the 50 contracts maximum allowed (Stefan Della Rovere having been sent back to the OHL and Gustafsson having returned to Sweden).



(All figures are cap hits, not actual salary in a given season.)

Note there are 23 player contracts shown below; 23 is the max. contracts on the active roster allowed to start the season up until the day of the trade deadline. Players on IR or LTIR do not count against the 23 player count for these purposes, though players on IR still count against the salary cap.

The re-institution of the bonus cushion allows teams to exceed the salary cap by up to 7.5% in performance bonuses in '09-'10. However, any deferred bonuses would count against what is projected to be a diminished '10-'11 cap.

+ - Waiver-exempt to start the '09-10 season.

(Rough estimates on some of the QOs as the numbers available among players coming off of entry-level deals could include unmentioned signing bonuses, which would mean a lower base salary and, hence, a lower QO figure than what's listed. This could be the case potentially with Joudrey, Wilson, Morin, Pinizzotto, Lepisto & Machesney.) Not all the players above are expected to be given QOs; if no QO, the player becomes an UFA.

1) A Nylander Buyout
2) Off-Season Cap
3) 50 Contracts Maximum
4) Bonus Cushion
5) RFA Qualifying Offers & Arbitration
6) Waivers

1) Nylander Buyout. What would a Nylander buyout look like?

Nylander Buyout in the summer of '09:

 '09-10'10-11'11-12'12-13
Actual Salary$5.5M$3M  
Averaged Salary$4.875M$4.875M  
Buyout Amount$3.667M$2M  
Buyout Spread$1.41667M$1.41667M$1.41667M$1.41667M
Buyout "Savings"$4.08334M$1.583M--
Cap Hit$0.79167$3.292M$1.41667M$1.41667M

Nylander Buyout in the summer of '10:

 '10-11'11-12
Actual Salary$3M 
Averaged Salary$4.875M 
Buyout Amount$2M 
Buyout Spread$1M$1M
Buyout "Savings"$2M-
Cap Hit$2.875M$1M

The buyout periods are between June 15-30 and three days after a team's final arbitration case is decided (in that instance it's a 48-hour window). A caveat here, though, that if a team only has one arbitration case in the form of a single team-elected arbitration case the additional buyout window will not be triggered.

2) Off-Season Salary Cap. What are the rules for cap compliance during the off-season? Teams are allowed to exceed the coming season's salary cap by up to 10% in the off-season (defined as from July 1 until the last day of training camp). Players included in the off-season cap tally include all players signed to one-way contracts; a proportional salary amount from players on two-way contracts based on their days on the NHL roster the previous season; all active QOs & offer sheets; and all buyout amounts and deferred bonuses for the upcoming season.

3) 50 Contracts Maximum. With the Caps at the maximum of 50 NHL contracts for '08-'09, will this handcuff McPhee at the draft or leading up to July 1 (when it officially becomes the '09-'10 season)? It shouldn't. Equal or more players could always be moved out than coming back, including the addition of a pending RFA that the org. doesn't plan on qualifying.

4) Bonus cushion: It's back in '09-'10 and how does that factor in for next season? Hard to tell. Backstrom ($1.55M) & Alzner ($0.8M) are eligible for a total of $2.35M in bonuses between them. The cushion allows them to exceed the cap in potential performance bonuses--potentially up to 7.5% of the cap--but they would have to defer any earned bonuses to '10-'11 that exceed the '09-'10 cap. That also would eat up cap room in '10-'11 and with the cap likely to take a dip of some magnitude, that may be a risk they'd rather avoid. It also depends on the bonuses themselves and how likely they are to be achieved but that info isn't publicly available.

Simeon Varlamov is not known to have any performance-related bonuses built into his entry-level deal. Any 35yo+ UFAs would be eligible to sign a one-year deal with performance-related bonuses.


5) QOs & Arb. How are qualifying offers calculated and how does arbitration work? Qualifying offer amounts depend on the salary of the expiring contract year as follows:

Salary in final year Qualifying offer
< $660k 110% of previous salary
$660k - $1M 105% of previous salary
> $1M 100% of previous salary

Arbitration rights (eligibility for player-elected arbitration) are determined based on the number of pro years and the players age upon signing their first contract.

Age upon signing first SPC Required years to gain arb. rights
18-20 4 years
21 3 years
22-23 2 years
24+ 1 year

It's important to note that the player's age when signing isn't their age when they actually sign the contract but their age on September 15th of the year in which the contract is signed. Pro in this instance means either the NHL or AHL, except for 18-19yo's in the AHL. Based on the CBA's wording, 18-19yo's must be in the NHL (and play 11 or more games) to be considered pro, which is why Bourque doesn't have arbitration rights this summer but will be eligible a year from now. For more on arbitration consult Article 12 of the CBA.

6) Waiver News? Is there anyone that will be subject to waivers for the first time next season? Chris Bourque looks to be the lone player that will require waivers for the first time entering the '09-'10 season. Bourque signed and turned pro at 19 and this fall will be the fifth year since. For the purpose of waivers, pro in this instance means the NHL or AHL for all ages (with NHL experience above a certain point in a given season accelerating a player's waiver clock). More players could require waivers for the first time later in the season if they reach the relevant games played threshold. Nicklas Backstrom & Jeff Schultz both reached their games played waiver threshold late in the '08-'09 regular season. Once the threshold is reached, waiver-exempt status is immediately no longer in effect. The thresholds for skaters are as follows:

AgeYears From SigningNHL Games Played
185160
194160
203160
21380
22370
23360
24260
25+1-

Among currently projected Caps roster players listed in the first table, only Karl Alzner & Simeon Varlamov are exempt from waivers in '09-'10.

- Langway and Sk84fun_dc's number crunching and CBA jujitsu. (We're human, though, so take this as just a good faith effort at getting into the nitty gritty of contracts in the cap world. We'll keep adding and correcting info as it becomes available.)

- NHLSCap @ Hockeybuzz for figures around the league, as well listings of pending FAs

- Many general cap-related questions can be answered here at NHLSCap's FAQ

- CapGeek for cap & buyout calculators

- A direct link (.pdf) to the NHL's CBA

- The NHLPA's listing of Washington players on the NHL roster. Note that the figures listed are salary figures for the current season.

Wow...that's a lot of work you put in. I appreciate having all these resources in front of me on one page. Thank you.

Quick question about Schultz; is that really his salary? NHLSCAP has a slightly higher number.

You're probably looking at his cap hit, which includes his signing bonus. He'll actually have a slightly lower cap hit ($715k) next season if he just accepts his QO. And, unlike Jurcina and Morrisonn, he doesn't have arbitration rights yet.

I think it might be time to add a Theodore buyout post.

If Caps Buyout Theodore in the summer of '09:

 '09-10'10-11
Actual Salary$4.5M 
Averaged Salary$4.5M 
Buyout Amount$3M 
Buyout Spread$1.5M$1.5M
Cap Hit$1.5M$1.5M


Much simpler calculation than Nylander's potential buyout as the salary and cap hit for Theodore match for each year of the 2 year contract and he only has 1 year left remaining on the contract.

Is there a general or specific time that the list of qualifying offers made or not made will be out?

5p.m., though I think we usually get word of it sometime earlier in the afternoon.

So which would people rather have, Theodore bought out and Johnson signed to something like $1m.

Or, just stick with Theo?

The only way I'd not stick with Theo is if he can be:

- Dealt (seems pretty doubtful, to start the season at least)
- Claimed on re-entry waivers (also doubtful at this point)
- Waived entirely

Dead cap space is killer and I'd rather they avoid that whenever possible, especially in '10-'11.

The first--and only guaranteed--buyout window closes on Tuesday.

Updated numbers in the main posts above including the approximate number for Jurcina's arbitration award per the Wash Post and Wash Times. Note, the Wash Times blog update from S. Whyno indicates the award is slightly under the 1.4M number link; note, udpated with the $1,375,000 number being reported

Next summer, Semin will have arbitration rights and Backstrom won't, if both of these pending RFAs are still not re-signed by then...is this correct?

What are the odds Backstrom agrees to a one year deal for 4 million and waits until Clark and Knuble are off the books before he gets his big raise?

low

If you look at the information above, the Caps have a number of UFAs (Theodore, Morrison, Morrisonn, Jurcina, Pothier) at the end of this season, so there is cap room if they agree to a contract for '10-forward for Semin and/or Backstrom. There is not the issue like Anaheim had with "tagging" room a couple of seasons ago. One or more of those UFAs could end up being re-signed, too, but there is considerable cap room for the '10-11 season and beyond right now.

(Also, as noted above, for '09-10, Backstrom has a cap hit now of 2.4M (incl. perf. bonuses) and Semin's cap hit is 4.6M.)

According to Tim Leone's article today on Jason B, he is signed to a two-contract with the Caps. First indication I have seen of a two-way deal; all earlier indications were that he signed an AHL deal. link; Leone usually reports this stuff pretty acuurately, but wait and see for now if this gets modified..."Thus, he wasn't leery about signing a two-way, free-agent deal with the Washington Capitals, who are deep at the position with Jose Theodore and 2008-09 rookie sensations Semyon Varlamov and Michal Neuvirth. "
