The free agent frenzy the NHL experienced eight days ago has cooled off, and it appears the Washington Capitals might be waiting until September to see what remains out there.
The Capitals, as Chuck Gormley noted for CSN Washington, could have as much as $3.9 million cap space remaining, should the club come to terms on a deal with restricted free agent Marcus Johansson.
The Capitals already, according to Capgeek.com, have 20 players signed for next season, and currently have $5.6 million in cap space.
They don’t have much room left on the roster, but could make depth moves closer to the start of the season with the cap space they do have.
“It’s never a bad thing to have,” Capitals general manager George McPhee told CSN Washington.
“We don’t know what develops, but it’s nice to have some flexibility to do things if we have to.”
