NHL Rumors: Washington Capitals and the Columbus Blue Jackets

Elliotte Friedman: It wouldn’t be a surprise if the Washington Capitals used some of the salary cap space they gained in the Matt Niskanen-Radko Gudas trade to re-sign Carl Hagelin.

Brian McNally: The Capitals needed some extra salary cap space to sign RFA Jakub Vrana, as well as to possibly re-sign Carl Hagelin or Brett Connolly. Would guess that they’ll go with Hagelin.

Pierre LeBrun: The Capitals are hoping to re-sign Hagelin so need to clear some space.
