Caps Qualify Five

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.

Washington did not tender qualifying offers to defenseman Jamie Hunt and forward Stephen Werner, making both players unrestricted free agents (UFA).

    This is good news, but when will we hear anything regarding Federov & Huet?
