i think what is the most clear is that the caps were successful last season because they had that odd sitution where rookie carlson and not a rookie by technicality alzner were an outstanding shutdown pair. this season alzner seems pretty steady, but carlson is having the sophmore slump and there's not doubt about that. as long as green was playing wideman was outstanding in a secondary role and created stats that looked like a primary role.

without green and with carlson trying to find his foundation, the caps are really stuck. it goes right back to the whole puck moving defenseman thing. in this league you dont get far without them.
