I am not surprised that teams target capitals other than the caps first line players. the 4 you mention either dont or primarily dont skate with the caps first line at even strenth. when johansson was skating first line i dont recall him getting picked on in ovechkin's face.
What good is a guy who only protects one line from aggression? And even still, doesn't protect it well enough to prevent the star center from taking an elbow to the head?
