Ovechkin On The Penalty Kill?

from Elliotte Friedman of CBC,

• Radical idea heard this week: Maybe new Capitals head coach Dale Hunter should try using Alexander Ovechkin as a penalty killer. It’s time to try something different to get him going.

• A story to watch: What are contenders San Jose ($2.5 million in cap room), Boston ($4.5M), Chicago ($5.5M) and Detroit ($5.6M) going to do? All of them are expected to add for the Cup run. Who will go first?

• It’s kind of funny, but it’s believed the Blackhawks will try to add a Brian Campbell-type defenceman. They miss his game. However, it’s likely they will go after someone whose contract ends this summer.

Think he’ll just hang out around the neutral zone on the PK, too?

Nah, he’ll also do that thing where he skates with big strides in circles around his own D-zone to make it look like he’s skating hard and doing something when in fact he’s really just… skating in big strides in circles.

Oh, good.  I just don’t want him to turn into a one-trick pony, ya know?

Playing on the PK is a great way to break a foot or an ankle. Although it might force improvement in his work ethic, its rather risky for a $9 million player.

Hey, he has more than just two tricks. He’s also good at looking like a character from the Adamms Family. And he’s also good at saying, “Fat f*ck!”
