"USA was a natural fit, and then we went hard after Sweden, too, because we've got Nick Backstrom," Capitals assistant general manager Don Fishman said. "We're putting our games on separate nights. We think USA will be a big night, but we think Nick Backstrom and Team Sweden will be a big night, too, so we aggressively went after that."
Assistant general manager Don Fishman said that with the salary cap expected to increase to between $69 million and $70 million, the Caps are not in a position where they need to buy a player out of a contract.
