Capitals think twice, cut Devante Smith-Pelly loose

Devante Smith Pelly was placed on waivers Wednesday

Wednesday morning, Capitals senior reporter, Mike Vogel, tweeted that Dmitrij Jaskin was missing practice because he was going to be placed on waivers at noon.

The Washington Capitals waived Devante Smith-Pelly on Wednesday, according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.

"Right now, there is a lot of movement going on, especially for teams that are salary-capped strapped like we are", Reirden said.

That change came mid-practice because there are a lot of "moving parts", Capitals coach Todd Reirden said.

With the National Hockey League trade deadline looming, the Capitals are in the midst of tweaking their roster for the stretch run.

The vast demand for electricity to power the infrastructure that runs the tech giants is under increasing scrutiny. Facebook's reading is 34 percent and Microsoft's is 34 percent, the report said.

When asked why the team changed course, Reirden responded, "That's what we made, organizationally".

The Caps had signed Smith-Pelly, 26, to a one-year, $1 million contract in the offseason, following the winger's spectacular play on the way to winning the Stanley Cup last season.

It's possible that Smith-Pelly skates through waivers and the Capitals successfully execute a move without losing an asset.

Smith-Pelly simply has not been an overly effective player from game-to-game in his career to date, but it will be interesting to see if a contender does take a flyer on him, given his impact last spring.
