A head coach can work with players to work within a system, but most professional athletes come in knowing the in's & out's of their sports. If they didn't, I doubt they'd make it to the professional level.
I am not angry with OV. He is a generational talent. I think trading him would be a huge mistake.

I do, however, believe OV and the Caps would be best served if OV did not have the C on his chest. I think taking the C off OV"s chest would reduce some of the weight on his shoulders. Freeing him up to be more himself on and off the ice.

And I think the Caps would be best served with someone more suitable to wear the C on his chest. A Ryan Callahan type player. Someone that gives maximum effort on both offense and defense. Someone that leads by example. Most importantly, a player that isn't currently on the Caps roster.
