Not going to look good in Oates system considering how Godawful year Carlson has had, actually the whole Caps dcore has looked like ECHL Ryan O'Byrnes'.
Which is a sin against humanity considering Chipotle's, a Colorado company (I believe) is way better.
Carlson has looked like **** in the regular season the past two years, under Boudreau, Hunter, and Oates. It's not the system. More likely, it's some combination of switching between several systems really quickly, lack of confidence (possibly brought on by the prior), and inconsistency due to youth and inexperience.
Get Johnson out of here. Avs are not going to be good enough or put him with the capable people to make him successful. He's got incredible upside with nobody to teach him but himself. Bad formula for success.
