holy smokes people act like Ovechkin is Scott Gomez or something. In his WORST season of his career he scored 38 goals and 65 points.

i can guarantee almost every team would want him on their team, maybe not at that price, but even at 9.5mil a year at least 10+ teams would want him.

people don't realize that long contracts that will be overpayments in the future are the norm nowadays and what it takes to get the best players.

and also, if the Cap continues to rise, that 9.5 will continue to be worth a smaller percentage of the total cap. and aside from the small market teams, actual total spending is hardly an issue and they only worry about the cap.

if the Caps wanted to move him, they could.
