If Ovechkin was available for free, as in, just take him and his contract and don't give Washington anything, I STILL wouldn't want him.

Thats $8M+ sucking up cap space for a long, long time when we need to fill other holes first (#1C, another good Dman, possibly #1 goalie, etc).

Not to mention Ovy is a shadow of his former self. Pierre McGuire this morning even said he's "lost a gear, if not a gear and a half" from what he used to be. Not trying to pimp up Pierre but my point is a lot of hockey people see this- he's not nearly as good as he used to be.
