Can the Capitals afford to resign T.J. Oshie?

Do the Washington Capitals have cap room to resign star right wing T.J. Oshie? Yes, but it may require a little creative accounting.

The Washington Capitals are projected to be in a salary cap bind, and buying out Brooks Orpik may be the team's best shot at bringing back Oshie while staying under the cap.

The team has several key restricted free agents, including second line center Evgeny Kuznetsov and top four defender Dmitry Orlov. The restricted group is expected to cost the team around $15 million in cap space, leaving a very tight budget for bringing back Oshie, who is coming off a career year with 33 goals.

Watch the video below to see how Oshie could realistically fit under the salary cap for next season.
