He's the centerpiece of the franchise. Without him and no big name to fill the void, attendance would plummet. Now if he's traded away for a ransom and the team somehow gets better for it, attendance would be strong still.

Trading Ovechkin in anything other than a sweetheart deal for the Caps would be franchise suicide.
