Kuznetsov is an unbelievable talent. I believe he may be on par with Malkin with a unique ability to get into the next gear when it really matters. I think Kuznetsov may be the most important piece if the Caps to ever win the Cup in the next decade. I want to see him in Caps uniform and with some young talent Caps can become the team all the fans wanted Caps to become in the last 3 years.
Unfortunately I see a big problem here, which is Ovechkin. I have a strong opinion that Ovechkin being this sort of father figure for Orlov and Kuznetsov will be a bad thing. Neither Kuznetsov nor Orlov need a guy like Ovechkin to be by their side. I believe that demise of Semin is partially to blame on Ovechkin's influence and Varlamov is lucky that he escaped this atmosphere. Move to Colorado will give Varlamov a chance at rediscovering himself.
I really want Ovechkin to be gone when Kuznetsov will join the Caps. It will do good things for all the parties, including Ovechkin himslef.
