Nonsense. Ovi is a defensive liability in this system and if we win like this why are people complaining?
i am not complaining. i am saying that this approach is causing and will continue to cause a conflict between the capitals and their franchise player.

ovechkin isnt going to approve this for the long run and the action he will take will either be to apply himself with great effort to change his game because he wants to stay or agree that he and his game no longer fit into the capitals game plan and ask to be traded.

this situation may well turn out wonderfully, but the capitals are holding a grenade with the pin pulled and even if they win they are risking losing the golden goose.

or you can look at it another way. if the caps make the scf, ov will see the light. if they lose this round ov explodes. i dont recall you thinking the caps had much of a chance in these playoffs. is that a risk that should pass on by as no big deal?
