- In the NHL there is a undisputed tradition: the rookies dinner. Is it the same in the AHL?

– Of course, it’s the same. We played paintball, but the curious thing was that rookies had no guns. We simply run around, and other guys shot at us. We also had no defense. We were six, two of us dressed up as a chicken. With a big wing on the back.

 

 

Lol.  That would be a bit rough.

How so?  A winger is not typically as good defensively as a center.  It's not his game.  If you look at the other top wingers ranked around Ovechkin (guys like Jagr, Lafleur, Bossy), I don't remember them being Selke candidates either.

 

The team has failed because other than him, few guys show up in the playoffs.  The Capitals historically are a bad playoff team.  Apparently, one guy can't change that.  

 

Well I have only really been a Wings fan and if Tatar or Nyquist or pretty much any other winger not named Franzen played like Ovechkin did/does they wouldn't be around.  Two way players is in my opinion the only way hockey should be played and all the rest of those guys are one trick ponies who sit in the slot or on the dot most the game waiting for a good pass or cherry pick waiting for a pass to score easy.  Just not my thing.

I hate the term offensive winger.  I don't like guys who play half the game so they can go sit on the dot and score goals.  I give him little credit considering his team has always been fail because their best player has refused up until now to actually play hockey.

Miller on the third while Weiss remains on the 4th ?! I want to know what Babcock is smoking.....

 

Peyote.  Has to be hallucinating to think Miller is better than Weiss in any way besides penalty killing.

Miller over Weiss on the 3rd.  Give me a break.  Weiss is 10x the offensive player Miller is.
