Washington Capitals Offseason Recap

Washington Capitals Offseason Recap

Projected Cap Space: 0

Signed/Acquired: Nic Dowd, Travis Boyd, Jayson Megna, Michael Sgarbossa, Riley Barber, Liam O’Brien, Madison Bowey, Brooks Orpik, Tom Wilson, Dmitrij Jaskin, John Carlson, Devante Smith-Pelly, Michal Kempny

Lost/Traded: Jay Beagle, Tyler Graovac, Philipp Grubauer, Anthony Peluso, Jakub Jerabek, Alex Chiasson

The Capitals did not do much this offseason. After the team won the Cup last season, management decided to not add any extra depth. They traded Philipp Grubauer and let long-time Capital Jay Beagle walk. They signed Tom Wilson to a terrible contract that they will regret. But they locked up some key players in John Carlson and Michal Kempny. I would still consider them a Cup contender, but the road will be much tougher for them.

Offseason Grade: B
