better? alzner is worth every bit of being the top 5 pick that he was. he plays a shutdown defensive game that is as good as most first pair veteran shutdown d do in this league and he's still a kid. because he is not a highlight maker either offensively or with big hits, he wont ever be particular expensive. lastly, he commands respect. he physically told lucic he was a cry baby for the entire league to see last playoffs and got away with it. he did the same thing to callahan this playoffs after he elbowed hillen.

carlson brings more skills. carlson and alzner are kids and a legit first pair. why would any team trade either of them? i am certain that the caps have no interest
