KHL has to start somewhere, and Kuznetsov can make a difference for the league and his team at home, he knows that and good for him
IMO, Russia fans posting here on HFboards are LOT more concerned with that stuff than the players are. Radulov has repeatedly made his own bed, so he has to deal with the repercussions. Anyone looking at that situation objectively understands that.

I don't think it's about that. If he's telling the truth, he wants to win a KHL championship, as well as Olympic gold and a Stanley Cup. He's got to figure that his best chance to win a Gagarin Cup is now, with what appears to be a very good team. It also sets him up nicely for Sochi, which could easily be his best shot at the Olympics. The Caps' window isn't closing soon with the young players on D and in net. He can afford to wait a little while.

The Caps have one window....Ovechkin. It's not limitless and it's trending the wrong direction. Two more wasted years and who knows where we'll be as a franchise.

Ovechkin may be the best window, but he won't be the only window.

I look forward to the next mystery window. Hopefully we dont have to wait as long to get another franchise level player, but I'm not holding my breath. After all....I'm a Caps fan. I know how this has gone in the past.

Tell me what team has won the Cup recently where their window has been a winger?

I'm thinking Chara/Thomas, Toews, Crosby/Malkin, Datsyuk/Lidstrom, Ward

Backstrom/Alzner is our window at least IMO

Toews? Kane.

You guys are ****ing amazing. Ovechkin 5 years in a row leading scorer for the Caps in the POs. One goal more and he takes sole possession of Capitals career playoff goal record.

But but he's completely responsible for all our playoff failures

The amount of nut hugging Backstrom gets from "knowledgeable" hockey fans for not doing anywhere as much as Ovechkin in the playoffs is ridiculous.

Parise/Kovalchuk seem to be doing pretty well for themselves. And that's a team whose best defenseman is Bryce Salvador.

So what...because the Caps have Ovechkin, they shouldn't even be trying and although Ovy has performed at the "best player in the world" level multiple times, the Caps have no window because he's a winger?

How about Ovechkin/Backstrom/Green putting up world class numbers when everything was clicking? Still not a viable window to win in your eyes?

The Caps window ends with Ovechkin until they prove otherwise.

That isn't what I was saying. 30 goals in 51 career playoff games is excellent production. But the fact that the franchise record for career playoff goals is 30 is pretty darn sad IMO...

It sounds sad but I am curious how it compares to most franchises that didn't get to light it up in the O6 era.

If we keep Ovechkin around that record might get pretty respectable, no?

With my Backstrom/Alzner response I was just thinking its easier to win with a Stud Center and up and coming stud shutdown dman its something everyone is looking for at the deadline. I love Ovechkin and don't at all think he's the problem in DC btw.

Goals are a part of it. He also gets a good deal of assists and can produce with crap linemates while drawing the other team's best shutdown unit and pummeling the **** out of it. We saw it against Boston. His contribution goes way way beyond goals. He outscored Backstrom while having the top defensive units zoned in on him and paired with Laich/Brouwer/Johansson. And getting **** for icetime. I mean come on.
