Pleased with this. Wanted Urbom in Washington for a long time, and called for him to be picked up yesterday. With the staff's refusal to give Orlov a chance, this move makes complete sense. Enables a lot more flexibility on the 3rd pairing. While the Caps are certainly loaded with defensive prospects of similar age, readiness, and upside to Urbom, it never hurts to get deeper (especially if they believe Urbom is ahead of guys like Orlov, Schilling, and Schmidt).
