Ovechkin has to transform his game like Kovalchuk. Never thought I would say that.

Make sure the puck gets in deep, work from the the cycle, don't try to beat guys by yourself, be responsible in your own end. Kovalchuk has excelled ever since he was given more responsibility on the PK and in key situations at the end of games. Kovalchuk is a great passer as well, he compliments certain teammates quite nicely (although we would like him to shoot more). Maybe Oates can use some stuff he learned from Lemaire and Deboer who coached Kovalchuk perfectly and use them with Ovechkin? Only time will tell.

I didn't really watch Ovechkin closely this last season so maybe his gamed changed but that was just my 2 cents.
