Actionable Intelligence - Washington Capitals

    The Capitals have had a slow start, but are always a dangerous team to play against. Even with team Captain Alexander Ovechkin's play in Russia, the Russian forward has had a slow start to the season, echoing his failures to lead last year. While some of that may be attributed to former head coach Dale Hunter, there is no question that the Capitals new management with Adam Oates ( :pop: ) is determined to move the team in the right direction, filling in around Ovechkin, instead of benching him for not back-checking. The elite level of play Ovechkin is capable of bringing is always something to be on the lookout for, and when rival superstars such as Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby take the ice, it is to be expected that Ovechkin will bring his A game.

    Surrounded by world-class talent such as Nicklas Backstrom, Mike Green, and John Carlson the only question in Washington is their goaltending. Backstopped by a pair of relatively unknowns, the Capitals lack of a defense-first scheme will be tested night after night.

Should be a good game. Looking forward to seeing Vokoun against his old colors.

I usually don't pay too much attention to the opening post of the game day thread (I usually like to just skip to the complainin'), but that was awesome.

If this were an 82 game season, Ovechkin is on pace to finish with 30 pts.

Since it's only a 48 game season, Ovechkin is on pace to finish with....18 points.
