Ovechkin is just a very powerful weapon. But Backstrom is MVP. If it makes any sense to you

Without Backstrom we are toast. Without OV we are still the capable team. Center vs winger. No chance by design. No offense.
Sadly, that speaks more to their lack of C depth and McPhee's GMing skills.

George McPhee....The Teflon GM. 15 years of failure and counting....

6 - Number of playoff series the Capitals have won since George McPhee took over as General Manager in 1997 (which makes him the third-longest-tenured GM in the League), three of which came in McPhee's first season on the job.
