Although Dennis Wideman is interested in re-signing with Washington, neither side seems to be in a rush to get anything done.
"I haven't talked to my agent yet about what's going to happen," said Wideman. "Obviously, there's a lot going on with the CBA. I'll have a meeting with him in the next few weeks and see what's going on." Wideman is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this summer after completing his four-year/$15,750,000 contract. He had 11 goals and 46 points in 82 games and figures to be one of the most desirable blueliners if he hits the market.
