1) We were never big fans of the Clymer 'experiment.' It seemed one of the Caps greatest strengths was their young up and coming defense
2) Why they would need to put one of their forwards there for anything other than for an emergency or on the PP never made sense to us
3) After watching Clymer get repeatedly 'turn stiled' its now clear why we didn't like the move.

So 1) who would you put back there on D? Muir? Erskine? No thanks and no thanks; and 2) which F would you sit to get Clymer back in?

1) We would give the ice time to a younger player who might be a part of the Caps future.
2) Though players like Clymer or Bradley seems like good guys, do they really need them? Or more specificly, wuld they be much worse off?
3) At this point playing Muir back there wouldn't be much of a difference than Clymer. Erskine we believe was waived and won't likely see an NHL game this year.
4) Liked your numbered/bulleted format!
