Can that system work on other players? Kessel would love to score 65 goals and Burke would love that too!


Player gets credit when things go well

System gets blamed when things don't
1st 26 games of 2010-2011 (pre losing streak)

Capitals - 90 goals (3.46 goals per game)
Ovechkin - 10g 23a (32g 73a pace)

Other 53 games of Ovechkin's season (losing streak on... Once they changed systems)

Capitals - 127 goals (2.4 goals per game)
Ovechkin - 22g 30a (34g 46a pace)

But you're right! It had nothing to do with a system change...
