It's the Caps team that sucks. Ovie is about the only player who does anything exciting, even if it's inconsistently.
Our D is really bad. Green is a flame out. He had a couple of good seasons and is now in decline. Carlson is a player but not a star. Alzner is a steady Eddie, he's the one player you can count on defensively. Orlov looked good last year. If healthy, he is a major piece for the future.
This D is far from Stanley Cup material.
Our O sucks less but does suck. Ribs is creating a lot of O in his contract year. But he can't do face-offs. He's good but not without his weak spots. Backstrom is not at all dominant. I'd figure out what his problem is...and maybe trade him. I always liked him but he's not looking like a 1C this year. The O doesn't look like a team. They look like a bunch of misfits.
Goalie is not great either. Though Holtby might be legit.
Ovie knows this team is crap.
