Will have video link to Insider Trading soon, but lead item tonight is likelihood of Ovechkin taking himself out of NHL All-Star Game.
Which is to suggest I believe Ovechkin is likely to opt out of ASG tho no decision has been made and will be addressed by Caps tomorrow.
Ovechkin, even tho suspended, is eligible for ASG. Should all get sorted out Tues. Nothing final yet. But, IMO, I’d be surprised if he goes.
Watch Insider Trading at TSN.

If OV skips the All Star don’t expect the NHL to discipline. League obviously wants him in Ott, but won’t make a big deal if he’s a no-show.
In 2009 NHL suspended Lidstrom and Datsyuk for not attending ASG in Mtl. A softer and gentler approach this time around.
