Monday markets with ken howard on the top line
3/22/13: The Washington Capitals are the last of four teams to announce a trade involving the Philadelphia Flyers this mont시흥출장마사지h, including a pair of moves involving forwards Scott Hartnell and M포커ichal Neuvirth.
But that doesn’t mean there hasn’t been good news for the Caps, who appear set to be the third-highest-paid team in the NHL.
Forwards Alex Ovechkin and Braden Holtby are both entering their sixth NHL seasons, so as each turns 33, the veteran could be leaving in search of another opportunity, even if he’s still on the cheap. And with goalie Braden Miller on the cheap next season, Holtby could be a candidate as well.
But both will be 36 by March 15, and since Miller’s cap hit is expected to total $4 million next season, the Caps are not likely to sign him, so both players are worth keeping an eye on to see what moves the youn양산출장마사지g players in Washington are made.
Here are their projected salaries next season (based on numbers from Capgeek):
Ovechkin’s: $14.5 million per season, $11 million annual average, $9 million salary cap hit with $4 million team option for 2016-17.
Holtby’s: $14.5 million per season, $12 million annual average, $7 million salary cap hit with $4 million team option for 2016-17.
Miller’s: $16.5 million per season, $17.5 million annual average, $6 million salary cap hit with $5.5 million team option for 2016-17.
All three of those contracts will cost the Capitals only a net $12 million in 2016-17. But since the Capitals are projected to be one of two teams to not have at least one top-six forward by the opening of training camp, the big savings are available for both Miller and Ovechkin.
Holtby is set to make $5 million in base salary, which is a very modest price to pay for a 34-year-old forward who has been good for 21 goals, 48 points in 62 games this year.
But there’s been some indication he might consider an early retirement, especially since Miller already has a four-year contract to lock him in at a salary of $9 million, and in the NHL’s salary cap.
