For me, it's really just Ovechkin not being Ovechkin, and his funk has rubbed off on the rest of the team.
Ovechkin can't skate through 3 guys and score. He's great but he's not that great. My only complains about Vech is that he ought shoot more and he ought to play hard in the D zone instead of cherry-picking. Oh and the league ought to let him hit people. But he's on the ice with the stoney handers like Chim, Laich, Ward, Hendricks. Brouwer is better but his hands are only average. Mojo doesn't have great hockey sense.
If Green, Backstrom, Vech and Semin are ever on the PP we might see the high octane O again. But complaining about Vech when his line mates are **** is a mistake. Do you want to run him out of town?
