The defense is pretty solid with Carlson/Alzner/Orlov/Hamrlik you're going to need to find two bottom pairing guys (obviously I don't think Schultz should be on the team, and I wouldn't count on Erskine.

It's time to move forward with who we have and let them develop, fixing holes through trades and drafting. I know this may be hard to understand since most of you (I'm guessing) are Redskins fans and adding free agents seems like the fix to all your problems.

Semin was decent against Boston before he did his ghost act and Green was once again useless. 4 points for an offensive defensemen? Go ahead and defend that, I'll wait.
You could have typed this verbatim (replacing Boston with New York and 4 points with 1 goal) one year ago. That worked out well.

The "ideal" lineup is:

Ovechkin-Backstrom-Brouwer
XXXXXX-XXXXXXX-Johansson
Chimera-Beagle-Laich
Ward-Eakin/Perreault-Hendricks

XXXXXX-Green
Alzner-Carlson
Hamrlik-Orlov
Schultz/Erskine

No ****ing way you can address those holes through the draft/trade by October.
