NHL Free Agency: Washington Capitals Make Offers To All Restricted Free Agents

While it was reported yesterday by 106.7 the Fan's Capitals beat reporter Sky Kerstein, senior writer for Mike Vogel confirmed today that the Washington Capitals have made offers to all of their restricted free agents.

Retaining John Carlson and Jay Beagle is pretty big for the Capitals. Both players were big contributors during the Capitals' playoff runs this past season. Retaining Mike Green could be a curious decision given his lack of production and his injury history, but obviously George McPhee hopes that some continuity with Green can help the team next season.

Mathieu Perrault is coming off his first full season in the NHL and McPhee thinks there is still plenty of potential in the 24-year-old.

The players have until July 15 to accept Washington's qualifying offer. Beagle, Green, and Perreault have until July 5 to indicate whether they want arbitration.
