Remember when Alex Ovechkin used to do this? With regularity?
Where is the burst? Where is the utter joy, the boundless determination, that sheer drive that made him the best player in the world less than three years ago? Ovechkin has gone from the most exciting player in hockey to a struggling sniper, a fizzling star that plays little defense and has a cap hit over $9.5 million.
Man, do I miss those days.
Welcome to Caps 'Round the Clock, a blog covering the Washington Capitals and the NHL. In season, I update the Blog after every practice and on game day with Caps news and information, and then provide a recap and analysis after each contest. I also write a periodical Prospect Watch and weekly feature pieces on the state of the Men in Red and other things Capitals. And of course, I will post videos and tidbits from around the League and offer my two cents as the season wears on. In the offseason, I write a Report Card for each player, and will keep you updated on all the news about the Caps through the summer. I'm glad you're here, and hope you come back!
