I know its not well accepted to look forward to anything in the next season, but I really do look forward to see a healthy Mike Green, Dennis Wideman and a sophmore John Carlson on the same blue line corp.
Carlson is the total package. However Green on the other hand is highly specialized on offense. (Sometimes I wish we'd just play him at winger, just to see what would happen lol)

Carlson is certainly a better defender then Green right now and only seems to be getting better. He'll never check like Charra or even Erskine but he does use the body. He's still developing his instincts but they're already amazing for someone his age. He also seems to thrive in high pressure situations. I already feel like he's our best defenseman.
