The Washington Capitals will not be able to deal pending UFA John Carlson at the trade deadline.
Well, most likely not anyway as Carlson is second among defensemen with 35 points and is fifth in TOI at 26:09. The Capitals are in the mix as Stanley Cup contenders and there is no way they can deal Carlson if they hope to finally win it all. The Blues did that last season with Kevin Shattenkirk and you have to wonder if they would have been able to win their second round matchup against Nashville as they only scored five goals in their last four games, falling 4-2 to the Predators. Carlson is a must play at all times. Jan 14 - 9:58 AM
