Steve Eminger and Brian Sutherby are inked for another season with the Capitals. Both players will need to improve on their numbers for this next season and both signed one year deals.
That leaves seven restricted free agents with Brooks Laich and Milan Jurcina going to arbitration. It's going to be harder for these players to fit in with recent off season signings. While some players like Jurcina will see some playing time, players like Laich and Sutherby have work to do to gain a full time spot as a center on the third and fourth lines when camp begins.
