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.
I'm a two team fan:Wings & Caps.
Out of respect to Cap's fans, I try hard not to compare.
But as to your post, I disagree. The "Grape Ape" is a natural leader. Taking on a 2-way game will influence the team to play in the same manner, much in the same way Datsyuk has on the Wings.
