Aaron Volpatti, recently claimed off waivers, will be the team's 1LW in Boston with Ovechkin and Backstrom.

Steve Oleksy, who started the season in the ECHL and was brought up like 8 games ago, has already led the team in ice time twice.
He definitely has one philosophy in common with Sacco--he rewards effort above all other things. I feel more for Oates than I do Sacco--I think Oates was handed a poorly-built roster with no depth to speak of. Sacco was handed a sub-par roster that he's somehow managed to make worse.

Also, putting Ovechkin and Ribeiro on the same team is akin to putting Nikki Sixx and Kurt Cobain in a poppy field and expecting things to go smoothly.
