  • The sixth round brought Minnesota's own Benton Maass, also a defenseman. [Caps, Rink, CSNMA, StarsandSticks, NAHL, Pioneer Press]

  • A big reason that T.J. Oshie re-signed with the Caps (besides $46 million in his pocket)? The team's window, in his mind, is not closed yet. [CSNMA]
  • But will that lengthy deal come back to haunt the Caps? [Caps Outsider]
  • The season that was for Braden Holtby. [Peerless]
  • What will be the DC equivalent of Nashville's catfish? [NoVa Caps]
