Alzner is a shut down defenseman who makes his partner better. He also plays the left side, a position where the Capitals aren't nearly as deep as on the right (Green, Carlson, Oleksy, Kundratek).

Alzner doesn't have the same upside as Carlson, but is clearly better at this stage in their careers.
