i dont buy that. he is getting things done? he is one point ahead of carlson and wideman and two points better than brooks laich who is also checking the opposition #1 line every night.

he might be getting things done, but not nearly enough of them.

if ovechkin is no longer a lead goal scorer and assists is his game, who is the finisher? we all know scoring is a secondary skill for backstrom. do the caps need to go out and get a new #1 scorer? brouwer or knuble are support players. complimentary players. if 8 isnt going to be the go to goal scorer, wouldnt mcphee need to get the caps a scorer?
