Cruel Summer Leads to Competitive Autumn

Washington's strong roster takes a heavy offseason hit, and the kids will be lining up to fill the voids at training camp this fall.

We've made it to the middle of July now, and roughly the middle of the offseason, or at least the midpoint between the Caps' last playoff game and the start of training camp for the 2017-18 season. Once winger Liam O'Brien is signed to a contract for the upcoming season, all of Washington's offseason work is done. The Caps will have signed all of their restricted free agents, and any personnel moves made between now and the start of camp in mid-September are likely to be of the minor variety.
