from Dmitry Chesnokov at the Washington Examiner,
How comfortable are you playing on the first line. A lot of people thought that Mike Knuble would join Ovechkin and Backstrom on the first line.
It’s not about being comfortable or not comfortable. We just have a great chemistry with Alex and Nick and no one is selfish. No one is taking it all on himself. It’s simply a pleasure to play when you have such chemistry. We just know each other all too well: where each of us should be, when to expect a pass, which position on the ice each one of us should take.
Because of this chemistry, your line will now be looked at differently by other teams, who will study the way you play. Are you ready to face the best defensemen in the NHL? Are you ready for more personal attention and closer play?
Let the rest be scared of us, than for us to be scared of how someone is going to play against us. Let them study our game. What is it to us? We will just go out and play our best, just like we have been playing. I don’t think it makes sense to change your game for anyone—especially when it comes to our line.
