Qualifying Offers Out for Green, Morrisonn, Fehr, Gordon & Laich

My action item list for Caps Management had a big omission in it, good thing nobody is crazy enough to give me an NHL GM position. Today, was the last day to issue qualifying offers and fortunately even though it wasn't on my AI list GMGM issued 5 qualifying offers. Per "Dump & Chase", yesterday, the Capitals today issued qualifying contract offers to defensemen Mike Green and Shaone Morrisonn and forwards Eric Fehr, Boyd Gordon and Brooks Laich. The offers allow Washington to retain exclusive negotiating rights with these players even beyond July 1, when the five would gain restricted free agent (RFA) status if they have not yet come to terms with the team. Two of the Caps prospects in the minor league system - Jamie Hunt and Stephen Werner - were not issued offers and now become Unrestricted Free Agents. Last year Hunt and Werner totaled 1.2M in salaries that the Caps free up in their budget.

Now the real fun begins.....

Still can't wait for next season. LETS GO CAPS!!!!
