So, the Rangers wanna play rough and tumble and take shots at multiple player’s head? Mmmmkay, we got some dudes that can and will answer the bell. All you gotta do is ask....

That was a pretty solid dubya! Good to see Hathaway get back out there and drop gloves!

John Carlson on pace for 160 points this year, which would shatter the record for most points by a defenseman currently held by Bobby Orr with 139

Easy, tiger.  Still early in the season to be extrapolating.

 

Besides, haven't you heard Carlson sucks?

It would be cool to see someone break 130.   It hasn't been done since Lemieux in 95-96 with 161 points though Kucherov came close last year with 128

 

A defenseman hasn't won the Art Ross since Boby Orr in 1975, who was the only one to do it (and he did it twice)

John Carlson picked up an assist Sunday and has taken over the NHL scoring lead with 18 points.

Carlson is off to a fabulous start for the Capitals as he has three goals and 15 assists in 10 games. He leads Connor McDavid by one and has at least one point in nine of the 10 games. While we obviously do not expect Carlson to keep up the pace, he is the top offensive defenseman by a wide margin right now.

But Carlson is on fire here lately

Two goals and an apple from Carlson last night. This dude is unstoppable.

John Carlson still leads the NHL in points. That is all.

Just imagine how far ahead he'd be if he didn't suck.

His maturation as a player over the last three years should be some kind of player development playbook. I don't think anyone's game has ever improved so significantly AFTER receiving a big contract.

 

I still can't cheer for Gudas.

When you have a quality organization, you shouldn't be afraid of giving big contracts. Guys won't lose motivation to produce. And its usually fine to give big contracts to your own homegrown players.

hopefully tomorrow is better. Same story in OT all year. Holtby hung out to dry on the 2 on 1
