Video- Alex Ovechkin On Barry Trotz

Ovechkin in my opinion was a bit low-keyed when talking about Trotz.

Not sure what to make of it.

 

added 5:36pm, from the CP at TSN,

"It was a good meeting, I think he'll be happy," said Ovechkin, who leads the NHL in goals (422), points (814), power-play goals (151) and game-winning goals (69) since entering the league in 2005. "We talked about the system, how he wants to coach."

The Capitals star made it a point to avoid discussing the details of his conversation with Trotz, but did acknowledge that the coach said there would be some changes.

"He's going to explain to everybody, it's not about just me, everybody will have to change," said Ovechkin, who became the 11th player in NHL history to record five 50-goal campaigns. "We just talked about how he wants to play with me and how he wants to play with the team. We talked about good things -- lots of good things, lots of bad things -- he sees what he can change with the team and what he can change with my game."
