Ovechkin is here (hopefully) until he retires, barring a request from him to leave.
I think fears of fans running away in droves if Ovi leaves are far overstated. Actually, I think most of the Ovi-era fans have grown up enough to want wins and recognize some flaws in his game. If the Caps continue to win and have some interesting young players like Kuz/Forsberg, I don't think the business side would suffer much.

But like I said, I don't want to discuss the politics. If politics/business overshadow winning for the Caps FO, there's nothing to discuss, anyway.
