It's hysterical that Toronto fans genuinely believe they could trade futures and futures alone for Ovechkin.
Hysterical? Look at the dropoff in production. Look. There are major, MAJOR red flags when a guy goes from 109 points, to 85 points, to 65 points and so far has 3 points in 7 games this season. Watch him play, the man looks lost out on the ice. That "force" that was once the greatest sniper on the planet doesn't appear to be there anymore. He's becoming invisible. Even last night, he scored his first goal of the season but other than a weak goal that he scored, he was an absolute non-factor. He was as invisible as a fourth liner. It's not that Leafs fans believe they could trade futures for OV, it's that
they don't want to
. Tell me something, how many GM's want a 65 point(or less) player making $9.5 million a year? because that's the reality. You can't say he's a hundred point guy when he hasn't done it in years. This is a "what have you done for me lately" league and business.
