Not a Caps fan... but outside looking in... I think trading Ovi could be like the Thornton trade for Boston... hopefully the return is not that bad... but it was a culture shift for Boston... and gave them the cap room to get the players who fit the identity they wanted... no Bruins fan today would tell you they regret Thornton for a pile of crap... because it meant they got Chara and the 5th overall pick...
SO let's say Ovechkin is moved for a package that does not help right away... Caps finish bottom five...
a) Players/picks for Ovi
b) One of Jones/McKinnon/Drouin/Barkov/Monahan
c) Cap room for Getzlaf/Perry
d) Culture change
e) Youth movement to Forsberg/Kuznetsov/2013 pick/whoever for Ovi
