Tarik El-Bashir of the Washington Post reported this morning that John Carlson has been called up to the Capitals. Carlson is a prized prospect, a former first round pick and a caused havoc with John Tavares and Michael Del Zotto in juniors.
We have already seen what Del Zotto has done manning the PP for the Rangers. Imagine what a young dynamic defensemen can do on a unit with Alexander Semin, Mike Green and over course Alexander Ovechkin. On the Hershey Bears, the youngster has 10 points in 17 games.
Prognosis: Grab him now, it will hurt a lot less if you are wrong.
