Today's Number looks at the Caps roster headed into the offseason

The Noon Number: 6,265,705 - Caps' projected remaining cap space for 2013-14 (in dollars) with 19 projected NHL players currently under contract, per CapGeek.

That number includes forwards Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom, Brooks Laich, Martin Erat, Troy Brouwer, Joel Ward, Jason Chimera, Eric Fehr, Mathieu Perreault, Jay Beagle and Aaron Volpatti, defensemen Mike Green, John Carlson, Jeff Schultz, John Erskine, Jack Hillen and Steve Oleksy, and goaltenders Michal Neuvirth and Braden Holtby.

Notable players under contract but not included in the calculus above include forwards Tom Wilson, defensemen Dmitry Orlov and Cameron Schilling, and goaltender Philipp Grubauer.

That brings us to the free agents, with potential unrestricted free agents including Mike Ribeiro, Matt Hendricks, Wojtek Wolski, Tom Poti and Joey Crabb, and noteworthy restricted free agents including Karl Alzner, Marcus Johansson and Tomas Kundratek.

There's plenty of work to be done this summer...
