Caps now can sign Alzner for 3 mil by putting Poti on LTIR. They can also trade Chimera,Schultz,Fehr or Semin to get more cap space. Either way expect a trade in the very near future.

If the Capitals give Alzner 3 million, then Mcphee suffers from Paul Holmgren syndrome. Then again, he did overpay for Laich, Ward, and Hamrlik.

Alzner will get around one million. He’s a restricted free agent with no arbitration rights.

Didn’t overpay for Laich. If he reaches free agency numerous teams would have offered him 5 mil a year. Alzner will get around 2 mil my point was they would have 3 mil available to sign him.

Doesn’t change the fact that he was overpaid by the Caps.

Caps will tell you that Laich taking less than market value allowed them to overpay Ward and Hamrlik. Rumors are also abound that Caps will announce tomorrow extensions for Alzner and Carlson.
