Mike Green has received a $5 million qualifying offer from the Washington Capitals.

After being limited to just 81 games over the last two seasons, there was some speculation that the Capitals might decide against qualifying Green. Due to his previous salary, $5 million was the minimum Washington could offer Green if they wanted to retain his rights as a restricted free agent. It's an amount Green might not live up to, but it's not a bad risk for the Capitals to take as they do have the cap space to spare.
