If I was running the Caps, I would have traded Semin for a strong leader (Nash/Brown?) long ago and made HIM the Captain of the Capitals. This would allow OV to concentrate on scoring.
There is a reason OV has never won anything in his career - other than a 2nd rate World Championship. If things don't change soon, he never will.
He did win a WJR's (or 2?). However, against a strong Canadian team in North Dakota, he was (again) non existent.
Maybe Ovechkin can learn from Canada's favorite Alexei Kovalev on how to be a winner. He after all accomplished the sacred goal of obtaining a Stanley Cup Trophy. True great.
