The only question in my mind is whether Washington has the balls to follow in Philly's footsteps and trade their franchise guy. Time will tell.
It's a risky gamble for sure. Ovi pretty much changed the d.c. culture of hockey single handedly. This area was a football town solely and now its really a hockey town. Tickets to caps games are quite expensive and very hard to get a hold of. From a personnel pov its time to move ovie or amnesty him. I cant think of too many teams willing to trade for that contract when its going to be 1/6th of the cap.

if ovie is traded can the caps still be as popular as they are now? doubtful
