Nobody is saying he'd be a healthy scratch for Washington. But RW is not an area of need, and upgrading from Brouwer to Eberle at 2RW certainly isn't worth losing Carlson. Right wing is unquestionably the deepest position on the Capitals. Hell, the depth at RW (both on the team an in the system as a hole) was part of why McPhee felt comfortable dealing Forsberg.
