I really like John Carlson. I think in years past he would have made the roster, but this year we've just got a huge number of good defensemen.

I'm really hoping Giroux makes the team!

Yeah. I figured he'd wind up there.

Going to Hershey isn't a bad thing. The Caps got a good thing going with the Bears!

Seemed like Carlson played well during the AHL playoffs, hope he keeps improving. Does this mean Alzner will strat the season with the big club?
Bruce has the authority. When Bruce makes the decision, it's a Redskins decision.
