Ovi can't even light up the KHL, can we finally admit that he's past his prime?

Not sure what system Oates will play, but if its anything like the old Boudreau system, then I'm sure we will see the old OV back. Highly doubt he will be up to 65 goal form (he set his bar incredibly high there), but 50g, 100pt seasons arent out of question yet.
I don't disagree with this. It would be like the mighty Oilers of the 80s hiring Jacques Lemaire and practicing a defensive system. Gretzky's numbers would have dropped in a significant manner.
