The $64,000 question: Is he skipping the ASG as a protest against his suspension?

What an immature, petty crybaby. And of course he's doing it to protest against his suspension. Of course Caps fan will rejoice that their "superstar" is giving two middle fingers to the league, but wow. Accept your punishment and move on like a man.

Can't they suspend him for not appearing?
They did it to one of the Wings, who was claiming to be hurt and wanted to play the first game back.

I doubt he will be suspended since he is missing games before and after the break. I think the rule is something like if you skip the ASG you have to miss the last game before it or the first game after.

Maybe they can replace him with someone that actually deserves to be there.

more from that article...teddy diabeetus chimes in

I do not agree in any way with the suspension of Alex Ovechkin for 3 games. I support Alex Ovechkin. He is our bedrock player — our Captain; and he and his family know that we are always here to support him.


can the caps ever not approach a situation like complete losers?

I'm pretty sure any player that had already been there and got a legit excuse to skip it would use it.

Well now the Caps camp is going to get a taste of what it's like to be called a crybaby. Their defiance against the league on the issue of player safety is not going to do them any favors.

I personally don't care that he's skipping, it's not like he really deserved to be there this year anyway.


P.S.

AO explained that he doesn't deserve to be there because he is suspended. In all seriousness, he has a legitimate argument. However, most would contend that he doesn't deserve to be there on the merit of his poor play as opposed to his supension. In the end, he gets a weekend off. Not a bad deal for someone who is searching for his soul right now athletically.
