I'm not sure how Ovy would do under a coach like Carlyle though.

What about you?
I don't think so. I think one of the under-rated reasons why Ovechkin was such a good goal scorer was having Backstrom in the middle. Once Backstrom got plagued with injury problems, Ovechkin's production dropped. I think Kessel makes his team-mates better, but I really don't think Ovechkin does as much.. He might hit but he's a nuisance and a distraction.
