Bad start for the Capitals, bad start for Ovechkin. Already playing with a couple of plumbers on his side. Right move by Adam Oates?Mike Milbury:
No, he is not playing with plumbers, he is playing with animals. Beagle and Crabb, these guys are good speedy players, but they are not very talented. You gotta find a way to put this guy with people that can give and go. Backstrom would a logical guy to put him with. You gotta find some quality center who can get him a puck. He didn't score till the last game and the feed was from, who else, Green. Those are the guys who gonna set him up. You start putting him with a couple of animals, he's gonna learn to bark like a dog himself.Speechless... He actually is defending Ovechkin. Haha... Even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while...
Hunterize him, marginalize him, just like Dale Hunter. You might just as well get rid of him, trade him, he is a dog now.
But I have to say, I am guilty too, said the same things, but softer, gentler... :-) Here are my yesterday tweets...

Oates: "Chasing the puck with the likes of Crabb and Beagle will really help Ovechkin to carry the torch at Sochi-2014" :-)23h TJ Овечкин @OvetjkinBlog
Is this what in Oates mind? "No Backstrom, no puck. The legs feed the wolf. I can't promise @Ovi8 will score, but he will be in best shape."
New name for the line of Oveja, Beagle and Crabb... The Legion of Super-Pets!
