If having Ovechkin means your team is locked into a certain style and coaching tactics - and if those tactics are not conducive to winning - you have to ask if you want Ovechkin playing a major role on your team. Even if you disagree with the conclusions it's an important question.
I agree with that, but if Ovechkin's style of play will force you to completely change your tactics. Then that speaks to how homogenous the Russian team is.
