I certainly think Kovy last year was more important to our team, than Ovy was to his team. That's not to say Ovechkin was the cause of the Caps playing lower than most years, but Ovechkin playing out of his mind helped those Presidents Trophy Caps teams tremendously as Kovy's performance for out team the last season, and a half did for us. Ovechkin is the heart of the Caps as Kovy is the heart of the Devils. When each player underperforms their teams underperform with them.
Most teams have one of these players who the team goes the way they go. For us it was Kovy despite the people who said Parise. Our record in game Kovy scored a goal in last year vs Parise was ridiculous. Think we lost 4 games where Kovy scored a goal in regulation, and he missed 5 games whereas Parise played all 82. When Kovy slumped for a little while the team did too.
