He won't. He has managed to keep his job for a while. The 1998 Finals team was Poile's. Ovechkin was a no brainer pick, so it isn't like he did anything special. He can fleece some GMs, but that is about it.
caps are the most pathetic team in the league tbh. no one else even compares to the consistently awful ratio of talent:production were seeing. oh, i have no doubt theyll go on a run where natural talent clicks and they score a lot of goals, and theyll probably end up 2 or 3 in the conference, but this is not a great team and CERTAINLY not a championship team.
the consistent lack of ability in BOTH zones when the play is settled is beyond both frustrating and boring at this point. they cant cycle anywhere near the leagues best, and they cant even sniff confident dzone play.
