It doesn't solve much problems though.

The Capitals have made huge moves during the weekend, most notably signing Evgeny Kuznetsov to an 8 years contract and trading away Marcus Johansson. However, all is not so well in Washington, D.C. as the Caps had 9.4M$ to sign 6 players before next season

This morning, they made a move toward normalizing their situation by signing winger Devante Smith-Pelly to a one year, two-ways contract. 

Smith-Pelly had inked a two years, 2.6M$ deal with the Devils before last season, but was bought out at the end of the campaign following abyssal performances. He scored 9 points in 53 games in New Jersey and obviously didn't fit in the roster anymore. 

The Caps still need to field a complete roster before next season, but plenty of moves are left to be made until then. Smith-Pelly is a good depth option but a far cry from replacing Johansson. The headaches continue for MacLellan.
