The NHL’s free agency market opens today at 12 PM ET, which means that all unrestricted free agents can sign with any team and restricted free agents can be signed to an offer sheet. It’s gonna be wild.
- What the current Capitals salary cap situation looks like
- How NHL contracts work (including information on offer sheets)
- A look at the free agents we at RMNB profiled for this offseason
I’m not expecting the Capitals to do much at all. There is even a chance they do absolutely nothing. If the team does sign a player or players tomorrow, likely options could include someone to play as a third line wing, another depth defenseman, or multiple AHL/NHL 2-way contract tweeners.
There are also some Capitals that could be finding new homes today:
|Jason Chimera, age 37||?||?|
|Michael Latta, age 25||?||?|
|Mike Richards, age 31||?||?|
|Mike Weber, age 28||?||?|
