3 long term contract extensions for the Washington Capitals.

The Washington Capitals have their team mostly assembled for next season. This post will look into the future and talk about which three players need long term contract extensions. Before we talk about long term, we need to talk about the most important contract extension that’s coming up as well.

Alex Ovechkin will be in need of a new contract when next season is up but his deal is likely to be on the short term side in the neighborhood of three years and likely an average annual value of $10-12 million a year.
