Johansson and Kundratek looked to be about the only guys that cared. I guess that was a stinker by Holtby but I didn't realize it hit him in the mask first time around.

Nothing more to add about Schultz. I almost feel sorry for the guy and I'm not sure why. With him on the roster all of the kids look really good.

Sorry effort for a desperate team. Even the coaching was bad.

This is one of the reasons why Ted will never permit Ovechkin being traded. Ted may be a fan, but he's a businessman first and he realizes that Ovechkin is critical to marketing the team.

If Ovi fades away then the fans won't care about him.

Plus RG3 is the new hotness in town and the guy is only 23 years old. Ovi will be forgotten if he doesn't play like he used it.

Exactly. This is why I don't understand the position that Ted will never allow Ovechkin to be traded (....because he fills the stands). How long until the bandwagon fans realize that Ovi is an overpaid, lazy, unproductive player.

Better to trade him before he has no value (Oops, too late). I'd be happy to trade him for nothing if some team will take the contract.

Yup, trading him for nothing would be a wonderful move for this franchise.

Time to deal Ovy. Not sure what you'd get for him. But this fall is David Duval-esq. What a bum.

Giving him away is crazy talk. There are plenty of teams that would offer a good return. Let's not go mental....

We're looking at 3 straight years of regression as player right now, yet they haven't missed the playoffs in 5 years, so the building is still full. I'm guessing they'll have to miss the playoffs before the building numbers take a noticeable hit.

Season ticket renewal time is right around the corner....

Man, Ovechkin's under-performance is bringing out some idiocy here.

I dont think dealing Ovi is a good idea. But I think him watching a game from the pressbox might be a good idea. He isn't playing well, and its like hes just lost out there. He coasts anytime the puck isn't on his stick, I think this is causing his problems on both ends of the ice

What an obscure (well... to me) reference. To Wikipedia!

As a fan of the opposing team tonight (who is also a long-term fan of Ovi and an appreciator of his passion), it is surprising to see. He had his feet moving at times but was easily handled by even Carolina's 3rd and 4th lines, skating into the zone and having it poked back out with ease. 0 shots on the night. I hope he finds what he needs, but I have no idea what that would entail.

its more his cap hit thats bringing it out, if ovechkin was being paid 5 million i wouldn't want to trade him. unfortunately ted decided to overpay him for no reason and now we're stuck with him until 2021 or whatever year it was

Watching the replay on NHL.com, and I've gotta wonder what Locker is smoking with his midterm grades. I realize who he works for, but man, get real guy.

Maybe it's because I just read 100 pages of a management textbook, but Ovechkin can be fixed. But that process should have started after the Montreal series and it should be ongoing. The biggest opportunity this franchise has isn't trading Green or Johansson or signing Ribeiro. It's reclaiming Ovechkin and it's pretty obvious that no effort is being made on that front.
