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.
