Considering he eats up more of his team's cap space than anyone in the league, it matters.

Ovechkin put up 52 goals in 2005-06. He put up 92 points in 06-07 and helped Chris Clark get 30 goals. He did this with a mess of a franchise at the time. He can do better than last year, that's all I'm saying. Defensive system or not, it was clear to me that he wasn't playing as well as years past.

I think he can get back to the PPG-90 point area. He's too talented to say otherwise. But I'm sorry if I'm calling him out for a poor season. I expect more because I know he can do more.
