Who Will Be the Top Dog on D?

Posted September 16, 2012

We’re back with another Capitals Sunday poll! Last time we asked who has the best hair, but now it’s time to get a little more serious. In 2012 the Capitals put extra emphasis on playing defensive hockey. It worked to some degree, got them into the playoffs and into the second round. And though it’s too soon to know exactly the style the Caps will be playing (if at all), we’ll still ask – which defensemen will have the highest +/- rating at the end of the regular season?

Hint: Last season, Karl Alzner led the entire team with +12, while John Carlson was -15.

Which Capitals defensemen will have the best +/- rating?

  • Karl Alzner (45%, 10 Votes)
  • Mike Green (23%, 5 Votes)
  • Jeff Schultz (18%, 4 Votes)
  • John Carlson (9%, 2 Votes)
  • Roman Hamrik (5%, 1 Votes)
  • John Erskine (0%, 0 Votes)

Total Voters: 22
