It scares me a bit.
It's what they did with/to Jagr and it's a big reason Ovechkin had a sophomore slump.
The time he's getting on the PK is unnecessary.
Boudreau, IMO, has had all summer to think about line combos and strategies and he's over-coaching them right now.
He needs to let Ovy and Co. do what they do and worry about the defense, goaltending and total lack of discipline they're demonstrating.
Steve Yzerman struggled with becoming a two way player for a while, and 3 cups later i'd say the wings made the right choice with him.
