The Washington Capitals are unable to re-sign defenseman Mike Green and forward Eric Fehr. According to the agent of both players, Craig Oster:

The Capitals have been open and transparent and honest and I think both players were clear in terms of their willingness and intention to stay if it was going to make sense.
It’s a function of where the Capitals are as an organization, changes that have been made there and the salary cap as to why they weren’t in a position to do much more than they were. At the end of the day, it’s a decision by them as to how they make their best team and based on all the factors it wasn’t going to work out for Mike or Eric or the organization and both sides will continue to move on. 

Both players will test free agency on July 1, and will be signed by a new team. The Detroit Red Wings are interested in signing Mike Green.
