Nick Ashooh and JJ Regan got together to discuss John Carlson getting edged out by Nashville's Roman Josi for the James Norris Memorial Trophy, which is given to the years top Defenseman. John Carlson, who led all defensemen in scoring with 75 points and was on pace to be one of only 10 Defenseman in NHL history to reach 89 points, was a deserving candidate but Josi was considered to be the better all-around defenseman.

The guys will get into if they thought Carlson was snubbed in favor of Josi, what the Caps need to do to sure up their defensive lineup, who will back-up Ilya Samsonov next year if it isn't Holtby, what each of them has seen in the Stanley Cup Finals so far and what the season might look like next year once the bubble experiment is all over.
