George McPhee entered Sundays start of NHL free agency with 20.8 million in cap space. He spent just 950,000 on fourth-line winger Joey Crabb.

When the Capitals made the decision to part ways with Alexander Semin, Mike Knuble, Jeff Halpern, Cody Eakin and Dennis Wideman, a total of 46 goals went with them.
