Team Explanation
Ovechkin deal is heavily front loaded. If he breaks the record early and retires, there will be cap penalties. If not, WSH has cost certainty on the rest of the chase, and Ovechkin is certain he's allowed to play in the NHL for as long as it takes to make it happen.

Trade: fans on each side are divided between thinking Kuznetsov is worth Kotkaniemi and a 1st and thinking he's worth Drouin and a B prospect. WSH needs center depth, even with Kuznetsov. If Kuznetsov and Drouin each need a change of scenery, that's fine, but there's no sense leaving WSH with three NHL centers and giving MTL five. Neither team wants that.

He has 4 goals in 10 games.

50.98cf% 51.77ff% 49.33xgf%

That’s awesome ?

He has lackluster numbers. I believe he’s averaged 25p/ 82games the last 2 season. Hab fans glorify the crap out of this kid lol my god. Kuzy immediately comes in and becomes their best center. Wtf would Washington do this. They get a downgrade at 2c (kk) and Drouin is average at best and overpaid. Kk is basically a younger version of Eller.

Capitals also. How does this help them win now? Look up Kotkaniemi numbers. He’s built like a good 3c far from a guy I would trust in my top 6 right now. He’s overhyped atm. He could turn into a top 6 guy but hardly is that right now
