Morrisonn and Jurcina are out, Sloan will have to play as a forward (replace Laing), so he's sliding into Jurcina's spot.

Way to put him in his place!!

Heaven forbid someone starts a new thread. Next time he'll make sure to spend the better part of his evening sifting through the 500 pages in the three acceptable threads before having the audacity to start a new discussion on a Caps message board about a move in the Caps organization.

Not everyone has the time to devote to the internet that you do. Try cutting people some slack.

I know the plus minus is kind of a weird stat. But his +14 i think it is in the AHL really stood out to me. Him and Alzner are both +14 I think. Anyways, I look forward to seeing him play.

Nothing personal to the habs...but I would really like to see Carlson plant someone into the glass on his first shift. The canadiens have a surplus of small forwards and Im looking for big John to make his mark.

Is John Carlson the next Scott Stevens?

I heard an interesting comparason on NHL Live regarding Carlson, comparing him to Stevens saying that he'll be that kind of player for the Caps when he makes it up full time. Does anyone know much about Carlson as to whether that is spot on or not?

I am glad the kid got a thread, its his first callup. I hope he makes a huge splash and stays up a lot longer than 9 games. You never know, we do have injuries in our D and someone in our pool of UFA D should get moved eventually right? The stock of guys like Pothier and Juice havent been this high in a long time.

nothing wrong with this thread; the need for the new one that started this morning...yeah, not so much.

Anyway, sounds like he is playing tonight. Looking forward to seeing his debut.

Congrats in advance to 19yo John Carlson on his debut, he turns 20yo in January.

Leone's Bears article about Carlson's call-up link

Vogel's piece about Carlson's likely debut link


And since this is a stand-alone thread, just for fun, a sampling of some articles from the past about Carlson; nothing like a little build up, lol:

lengthy predraft article about Carlson in NJ paper - plenty about his hockey path up until that point

nhl.com article - Carlson makes seamless transition to AHL from '09 playoffs

Carlson signs ELC announced by his NJ team, NJ Rockets and announced by his USHL team, Indiana Ice

article as his OHL debut approached and early in the season link

Corey M article on Carlson from before this season

NEHJ article from June 2009 and another from September 2009

Tim Leone article from last season - only portion available rest is archived

Per a few Twitter feeds: Carlson will be the youngest player to suit up for the Caps since Semin in '03-04 and the first Capital born in the 1990's.

that's a lofty comparison, and they probably said it because he's a highly touted teenage defenseman. Does he have a mean streak like Scotty?

ok, that's simply depressing...fwiw, I don't think anyone born in '89 has suited up for a game that counts either, unless one counts Holtby.

Yeah, Alzner being a late '88 I believe that's right. Carlson has the frame to be a pretty effective physical defenseman. From what I've seen he doesn't really look for big open ice hits like Stevens did--or fight like Stevens did as a Capital--but rather uses it in the corners and along the boards to separate players from pucks and then get the transition game started.

funny quote from the Vogel article, citing Brooks Laich:

Quote:
“He’s played exhibition games, too,” notes Caps forward Brooks Laich, “which helps. And they play the same way in Hershey that they play here so it’s a seamless transition for Carl.”
he knows its not Alzner, right?


stoked for the young man to get his first regular NHL game.

I watched most of the game on the tube,and Carlson looked good. He was hitting, shooting and playing with confidence. He seemed to fit in and size looked fine also, I would like to see more of him. I think he played about 15-18 minutes...This kid looks good.

We will. Now with Poti injured there's really no other choice than to play him.

He played very well I thought. At one point, he had somebody lined up for a big hit coming through the neutral zone, and then narrowly missed. It was like when Ovechkin skates down the wing with the puck and then its gloved by the goalie.

I nearly lost my **** when he hit the post, thinking that it was a goal.
