  • The Caps locked up Jay Beagle with a three-year, $5.25-million deal two days before he would've hit free agency. [CapitalsRinkWaPoWashTimesCSNWTed's TakeRMNBStars and Sticks]
  • Speaking of free agency, Mike Green is topping lists of the most desirable UFAs, with Joel Ward also getting some mentions. Good luck fellas - go bust a rival's cap and dramatically underperform, would ya? [WaPoUSA TodayNHL NumbersThe ScoreEdmonton Journal]
  • So what's Green worth, anyway? [WaPo]
  • What the Caps need right now (and why losing Green, Ward and (presumably) Eric Fehr might not be as bad as you think)... [Rink]
  • ... and what to expect when free agency opens tomorrow. [CSNW]
  • Who might be on the Caps' right-wing radar? [WaPo]
  • Perhaps the trade route may be the better way to better the team. [WaPo]
  • On the Restricted Free Agency Front, the Caps qualified all of theirs (Braden Holtby, Evgeny Kuznetsov, Marcus Johansson, Stan Galiev and Chris Brown) except for Eddie Pasquale, Brandon Anderson and Patrick Wey, who unfortunately has had to retire from hockey after suffering multiple concussions. Kick rocks, Rich Clune. You too, Jay Rosehill. [WaPoPatriot-NewsCSNWRMNB]
