Description: It is unclear how Capitals defenseman John Carlson fits in new head coach Barry Trotz's system with a healthy Mike Green and the addition of Matt Niskanen.
Insight: All three are offensive defenseman and will compete for playing-time on the power play. Carlson should, however, receive top-four defenseman minutes and play some on the secondary power-play unit. Carlson has far less risk than Green or Niskanen because Carlson has not missed a regular-season game since his rookie year.
