Whether he likes it or not, OV needs to develop the ability to play along the boards and retain the puck within a cycle game, even if the new coach doesn't stress it. His positioning always seems to be off when playing on the boards, and he doesn't seem to be able to use his size to hang on to the puck...
Is that why Ovechkin's career playoff number's are so bad?
