Ryan Callahan is my idea of a leader, someone worthy of the C on their chest. Does OV hustle like Callahan does game in game out? No.

And I said a couple posts ago that talent is a factor for any successful team, but leadership is what puts teams over the top. If Federov was on the Caps the last 3 years I would maintain the Caps playoff outcome would of been different. Especially in regards to that famous Habs series, or the TB series collapse the following year. OV said it best in regards to Federov:

"He's our leader...He's our best guy in the locker room. He showed it. He's our best guy. He has more experience than anybody in this locker room. He knows how to play like that. He just shows his leadership."

The Caps have needed a presence like that since Federov left. OV needed a presence like that, still does.
