In Washington, at least half of the sweater-clad fan base has Ovechkin on the back. People name their dogs Ovie. The casual, Sunday fans know him and no one else. The local sports reports start off with "Alex Ovechkin and the Caps in town..." As others have said, he is the franchise. I can't see any circumstance where Leonsis would be willing to part with him.

And again, I can't imagine much of a market for him at this point.
