Agent: Milan Jurcina set to become free agent

Caps defenseman Milan Jurcina will be "going to the market on July 1," according to his agent Allan Walsh.

Jurcina was dealt to the Blue Jackets in the Chris Clark deal on Dec. 28 and then reacquired at the deadline. But the bruising blueliner did not play for the Caps down the stretch or in the playoffs because of a sports hernia injury.

The 27-year-old Slovak will become an unrestricted free agent next month. He earned $1.375 million last season.

Just to let everyone know, Tarik is going to be a guest on Japers' Rink Radio this Saturday morning at 10 am from the draft in LA to talk about the draft, any trades that will have gone down and free agency.

The show can be found at and archived on itunes. If you missed it this past Saturday we had on Karl Alzner and Scott Cullen of and both were great interviews!

I am sad to see that Juice will be elsewhere.

for those of us who don't know all of the details, does this mean juice is no longer a cap? or does it mean that he is less likely to be a cap? or does it mean he will probably be a cap?

Technically it means "much less likely" -- though most likely it means "no longer a cap"

Guess he finally gets to move out of the area....

good thing we traded a pick for him

Good thing that pick we traded for him was conditional, so we didn't lose it.

The Caps have two kids coming up who will be cheaper and better, no big deal here, really. If Juice cost less, his physical style might help, but 1.5 mil+ for a third pairing guy = not worth it.
