from J.P. of Japers’ Rink,
Finally, the game is always changing, and recent trends seem to have it headed back to mid-90s levels of obstruction and scoring. Do you like where the game is and where it’s heading, and do you feel that the Caps have been agile enough to adjust to the changes as they’ve come?
Leonsis: With professional sports it seems you are always changing in some fashion or another. There is something new employed by a team and coaches and players react to it. In the end, however, it comes down to a team buying into a system, executing it and sometimes having a bit of luck.
I love our game. Our fans love our game. Are there areas for improvement? Absolutely there are. That is the nature of business in general. When you become satisfied, you become stagnant.
So, yes, I think we have made adjustments, and I’m sure you will see changes made by Adam Oates and his staff. We will continue to make adjustments in order to win a Stanley Cup.
Furthermore, I am fortunate to be part of the NHL’s executive committee, and I am involved with a small circle of other owners in all aspects of the CBA discussions and potential rule changes. So we are well aware of what is on the horizon.
