  • Big day, kids - free agency opens at noon ET today, so stay tuned right here for any new additions to the Caps’ roster all summer long!
  • Several big needs face the Caps this offseason, outside of goaltending. First among them is figuring out what to do for 2C with Nicklas Backstrom on the sidelines... [Rink]
  • ...and then what to do for the top-line right wing with Tom Wilson recovering. [Rink]
  • With so many question marks on the roster, look ahead to what we might expect - and what the Caps need to do - as free agency opens. [NBCSW, WHN, NoVa Caps, RMNB (and again)]
