Ovechkin, at the moment, would not fit our playstyle. Buying into our system would be nothing short of a complete reform of the man.
I think people are far too hard on Ovechkin.

All he needs is a coach to keep him on the left wing, give him plenty of minutes and stop trying to turn him into a defensive player. Martin and Cunnyworth tried the same crap with Cammalleri. Let the offensive players be offensive players. You put Plekanec on his line and the team will never have a negative +/- due to strong puck possession and good forechecking. Add a Gallagher who can snipe on the right and you're golden.

Therrien has handled the two best players in the game. Crosby still speaks glowingly of Therrien. Getting Ovechkin to buy into the system is easy as letting him be as great as he can be.
