So much for the Capitals being done with free agent offers. George McPhee pulled off a stunner Saturday evening by signing goaltender Tomas Vokoun to a one-year, $1.5 million deal.

It’ll be Vokoun and Michal Neuvirth instead of Neuvirth and Braden Holtby. This also means the Caps will be tighter against the salary cap. Here’s a possible roster, assuming the following things:


1. Restricted free agents Troy Brouwer (estimating $1.4 million) and Karl Alzner (estimating $2.5 million) are re-signed.

2. Tom Poti is placed on long-term injured reserve.

3. Sean Collins is waived and sent to Hershey.


Alexander Ovechkin ($9.538m) / Nicklas Backstrom ($6.700m) / Alexander Semin ($6.700m)

Troy Brouwer ($1.400m) / Marcus Johansson ($0.900m) / Mike Knuble ($2.000m)

Jason Chimera ($1.875m) / Brooks Laich ($4.500m) / Joel Ward ($3.000m)

Matt Hendricks ($0.825m) / Jeff Halpern ($0.825m) / Eric Fehr ($2.200m)

D.J. King ($0.637m)


Karl Alzner ($2.500m) / John Carlson ($0.845m)

Roman Hamrlik ($3.500m) / Mike Green ($5.250m)

Jeff Schultz ($2.750m) / Dennis Wideman ($3.937m)

John Erskine ($1.500m)


Michal Neuvirth ($1.150m) / Tomas Vokoun ($1.500m)

BUYOUTS: Tyler Sloan ($0.233m)
