Ideally it would be 3-4 years but oh well. We still need a #2/3 on LD though, Alzner is neither of those...habs are making a mistake imo

Awful. Absolutely awful. Alzner has no offensive ability, no puck skills. Basically a pylon. We do not need this guy and we are wasting Cap space.

You do not spend this money on a guy with no offense. You just don't do it.

Alzner is a very clear upgrade over Emelin. If the money/term is accurate, this is a good signing.

Alzner led the Capitals in SH TOI/GP and they finished 7th in PK% so hopefully he can at least help in that department

Top 10 in GA per 60 min last year. At that salary id be fine with it. Ideal kind of partner for Petry.

He does have a very underrated shot from the point IMO, could be an asset on the 2nd PP wave.

[MOD]
Alzner isn't an offensive defenseman, and he's also 10 years younger than Markov (who's asking for 12m over 2 years compared to 22.5m over 5 years).

I agree with you though, Alzner isn't what we needed. There are no top pairing defensemen on the market though...I think we'll only get that through the draft.

This is a good signing. 6 was scary but this is a good dollar number.

Those complaining legit dont watch him enough. He wont bring offense but hes really really solid and brings stability to the group. Him and Petry should be a good pair

For a UFA D on July 1st, I'm surprised the price tag is "decent".

That means Radulov and or Markov is walking awa free.
Their money going to a shutdown D who got benhed in the PO cause he wasn't able to flollow the game.

Petry finally gets a partner he doesn't have to cover for. Expect a big year from that duo.

markov did this to himself

it was so obvious we were signing Alzner

Welcome to the habs Karl, i remember watching you raise the WJC cup as team canada captain back in 08

We are in the same position now as when Emelin was part of our roster.

Panic signing
Alzner looked good because of Carlson in DC
Barely better than Emelin

Not to defend Alzner but those that are complaining like, what did you really expect Bergevin to sign as a D this summer? He just added someone that cost us no assets, basically getting the Emelin money. You can't tell me he is worse than Emelin.
I get some are upset but on the free agency market, there was nothing, after Shattenkirk and Markov, Alzner was the next best one.

Moves solely to please Price. Huge protection in front of the net. Will mean NOTHING as far as making this team actually better. Didn't want him before. Don't want him now. Not surprised one bit. Bergie/Dudley at their best.

Idk, the caps board say he's fallen off the wagon and has been pretty **** defensively and his groin injury is only worse news.

I don't understand why people think we cant sign Markov and Rads..........we still have 16.5million in cap space.......
Markov 5.5
Radulov 6.5
Galch 4.5

Done.
