Already been a busy offseason for the REIGNING STANLEY CUP CHAMPS Washington Capitals. - Trotz asks for a big raise and both sides agree to part ways. Heads to NYI for $5M per year. Reirden expected to be announced as HC any day now. - Dump Orpik’s salary along with Grubs to COL to free up cap space. - Resign Carlson, DSP, Kempny for $11.5M AAV on hometown discounts which is a cumulative steal. We’ve got the Top 4 D all locked up for the next 3 years now. - about $9M left to resign Wilson, Beagle, and find a #6D. Might even get Orpik back at league minimum after COL bought him out. So we might end up with the entire lineup back (minus the backup goaltender) from the Cup champs. Crazy.
