John Carlson gave a measured response when asked if he wants to re-sign with Washington.
Carlson is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. "I love it here. I want to stay here. But there’s more to it than that," he said. Carlson is coming off a monster season where he scored 15 goals and 68 points in 82 contests. That should set the 28-year-old defenseman up with a big contract and while the Capitals are in a position where they likely could find a way to accommodate him and stay cap complaint, they may be reluctant to go down that path. It wouldn't be surprising to see him at least test the UFA waters before making a decision on his future. Jun 13 - 3:12 PM
