So I guess Ovechkin is a better captain than Callahan by your logic?
Please stop posting stuff bashing Ovechkin as a captain when you clearly don't know much about the matter. And btw, if he's such a bad captain, please name me other teams in the NHL that have made it to the 2nd round 3 of the last 4 years? They're probably aren't all that many...
I've yet to mention judging any captain by regular season finishes so I'm not sure what your talking about. Yes the caps in 09-10 were better than last years NY team and like you said they lost in the first round. I do know a little bit about the matter. I know Ovechkin is lazy on the backcheck and in general in the defensive zone and that he sulks when not given ice time. That's about all I need to know when judging his leadership. His play falling off the map is further evidence.
