Holy shit:/ Ovechkin is not worht it imo. Would rather spread out that money among several stars instead of giving it all to one guy. Ovechkin just handcuffed the Capitals for 13 years. Ovechkin will never win a Cup. I would take less money so that the team could sign other talent. What a waste of $124M.

Just heard that on the Bruins and Canadians game. That's a shitload of money, why'd we have a lockout a few years back again? Anyways, I'm going to watch Komisarek and Lucic battle some more.

What is even more amazing he didn't use an agent. I'm not sure why these top stars use agents anyways. All you need is a good lawyer(team).

that's a bargain if you ask me, I doubt salaries will go down over the next 13 years, and Ovechkin will always be one of the best scorers in the NHL. Also props to him for dumping Meehan, never liked that guy.

The Capitals are pricing the players out of the league again. 

Maybe if we quit playing the games and went to an all shootout format, this would make sense.

"Ovechkin will always be one of the best scorers in the NHL. " Based on the past performance of many of the much heralded russian superstars, there is a 50/50 chance he will get fat and disappear for months at a time. Most often, those months are april and may. Mark
