Where Ovechkin does have a problem is in the defensive zone, when the other team has control of the puck. He then kind of just floats around the top of the faceoff circle and doesn't put in much effort.
Those are two different areas of the game.
Fair enough but if he's able to clean up his own defensive mess then the caps should be fine with his defensive play.
