Someone is on their way out this week, Alzner must be signed. I will throw a **** fit if he's not, his jersey was expensive.

With the 10% off-season cushion now and the Poti and (possibly) Fehr ltir later, cap space is not a barrier to re-signing anyone.

I'm still interested to see whos getting shipped out. Because its going to have to happen eventually.

I still maintain there is little market for Semin...so its going to be the likes of Chimera, Fehr and Schultz that might be on the market. It'll be interesting to see who goes and for what.

In-season cap max for 2011-12: $64,300,000
Off-season cap max: 110% of $64,300,000 = $70,730,000

110% overage isn’t as simple as adding up a 23 player roster. This was more of an issue last summer with Nylander and Collins counting against the off-season cap hit, especially Nylander because the percentage of the overage space he took up with his cap hit had the potential to impact some off-season movement, but for clarification:

The Off-season 110% cap calculation includes the following:

- ALL players on one-way contracts. This season not much of an issue since Beagle and King are already accounted for in most scenarios, but even if someone plans to demote one or both, until (if) it happens before the season starts, they count against the cap this off-season (when there’s the 10% extra space.)

- Buyout cap hits (i.e., Sloan's 233,333 buyout cap hit)

- ALL RFA QOs – Prorated based on time on NHL roster previous season; for Alzner ($826,875) and Brouwer ($1,050,000) – they count at 100% of their QOs until the QOs expire or a contract is agreed to for each player. Obviously, once there’s a contract that’s the cap hit which will count. For Perreault, his RFA QO NHL salary counts pro-rated based on days on the NHL roster last season. (Also, G.O.D., Perreault’s QO should have been for $715,000 based on his ’10-11 NHL salary and the required 110% offer based on that salary.) He was on the roster for a little less than half the season.

- For other players under contract who spent time in the NHL and AHL, pro-rated NHL salary based on days on NHL roster last season counts against the off-season cap calculation…this includes Holtby, Aucoin, Patrick McNeill, Sean Collins, Potulny, and Sabourin. I haven’t done the math, but the 6 players combined pro-rated cap hit should be less than $500,000, I think it's actually less than $400,000 but I haven't run the detailed numbers.

So, estimating only, the current off-season cap hit calculation for the Washington Capitals is approximately $66,300,000.

I think Chimera looks like the most likely candidate to be traded based on his cap hit and role on the team combined with the new acquisitions.

Hard to know for sure, but it sure looks like the Caps are expecting Poti to be on LTIR to start, if not for the entire season. Fehr another possibility for LTIR to start the season. Depending on Sjogren's camp(s) and other injuries/trades, it's also possible one of Beagle or King ends up being demoted before camp ends.

I also tend to think there are trades coming.

I think the biggest thing forcing his hand is the quality of the 2012 draft. I'm pretty certain Fehr and Schultz could return first rounders and they are totally expendable. Chimera might bring a 2nd and moving him is addition by subtraction.

If the Caps can get 1sts for each of Schultz and Fehr, then it should be a no-brainer, and I am not a Schultz basher.

Nor am I and agree. No way GMGM wrangles a 1st for either player. More power to him if he does though.

I have to think 55 is someone they will move...or at least want to. I know they have loved him forever but at some point I hope the realize he doesnt fit what they do
