They always say that. And with good cause.

Captain Harrington was the best defenseman on the ice tonight. Great positioning, closed gaps quickly, smart stick, efficient outlets. The only time he didn't look good was when he missed the hint on a defensive switch on the PP and just kept getting crowded onto the half-wall, haha.

People think he's the most expendable of our coveted defense prospects. I think we'd end up very, very sorry if we dealt him. He's as steady as junior defensemen come, and he's got the tools for his game to translate to the show.

Caps' draft pick Tom Wilson also played a helluva game. He's a bull out there, and he steamrolled any Russian that got in his way. Undrafted Naumenkov was the best Russian, I thought. Played a smart, physical game all night long.
