Marcus Johansson's new deal will impact how the Capitals approach the rest of the free agency.
"We're waiting for the salary cap number to come out, and then we make our decisions based on what we perceive to have on the cap, what room and what space we have left," GM Brian MacLellan said. "The Marcus Johansson one is going to impact us the biggest. The other guys, I feel fairly confident that we can slot them in the proper area, and I'm not sure on Marcus yet. We'll see how it goes negotiations-wise." He is optimistic that a deal with Johansson can be worked out without salary arbitration. Jun 21 - 6:02 PM

Marcus Johansson and the Capitals have begun contract negotiations.

Johansson is a restricted free agent this offseason. He’s coming off a deal that carried a $2 million cap hit. "Does the team want to do a three-year deal, a four-year deal, a five-year deal? Then what does Marcus want?" agent J.P. Barry said. "That’s why we’re trying to find a term that everybody is comfortable with." The 25-year-old had 17 goals and 46 points this past season.

He will be re-evaluated on Wednesday. Johansson underwent concussion protocol in Game 3 after he was hit high and late by Pittsburgh's Kris Letang on Monday night. He was cleared to return and didn't miss a shift for the rest of the game. It's unclear right now if symptoms surfaced overnight or if the Capitals are just being cautious. Johansson did say his neck was sore after the match.
