Washington's defense core is slowly getting better.

Well Lindsay was out for the season with a serious head injury, so that is not that much of a surprise.

Jean-Luc however had been a terrific pick up for the Thrashers. Columbus had tried to move him to F, but he came right in to Atlanta and played very hard, solid defensive work.

I assume the Thrashers have made a trade which will send another defenseman our way. Because the only Thrashers defenseman who could clear waivers was Garnett Exelby, and he is one of our best blueliners right now.

Great pickup for Washington, JLGP will offer immediate help to their blueline.

That is an interesting move, two relatively older players who should help next season, whenever that may be. I used to really like Grand Pierre's game, then soured on him for a while, but I had heard that he has been playing very well of late. Hope he can fit in nicely on the Caps. Might be a precursor to a Witt trade.

My bad, was unaware of his contract status/age, etc. I figured that if he is out for the season, the Caps were figuring to add him as a character guy for next year.

Yeah, I have that feeling, too. I can't see him keep wasting his time in the AHL again, too. Maybe he should hang them up now and start coaching.

Caps did pick him up for a reason, though. We shall see.
