Looks like the hockey gods really liked Washington, they trade away all thier stars and get rewarded with Ovechkin and a bunch of other prospects and draft picks.

Interestingly enough, I never realized that the Caps have only selected #1 twice before this one.

1974
1976

That's a long time. I guess that's the problem when they've never really had a stinker of a team (since the expansion era).

Sounds sort of like the B's old MO. Just good enough to make the playoffs. End up with #12 - 20 pick.

So that's how you blow up a team to re-build! should be interesting to watch their growth. I just hope the B's pull through and sign Gonchar!

Not to mention getting Jakub Klepis for Mike Grier. Steal IMO. Add that in to the all the picks they have this year (3 1st and 3 2nd I believe) and they will be really strong in two years.

Could Bettman and crew do any 'better' job marketing the game?
