It appears that the Capitals' intentions are to keep the band back together. They haven't signed any significant new player in free agency and continue to re-sign the free agents who were on their roster last season. The latest is right wing Eric Fehr.
According to The Hockey News, the Capitals were again able to avoid arbitration by signing Fehr to a two year contract worth $4.4 million. Shortly after he signed the deal, Fehr tweeted this:
Happy to announce I'll be back for the next two years with the Caps! Can't wait to start back up!
The playoffs might not have gone as well as we may have hoped, but this was the best team throughout the last regular season. Maybe keeping them together is the way to go.
