With Clark traded, I'm not sure there really was another option on the Capitals. Ovechkin is without a doubt the cornerstone of that franchise, and I think he is maturing as a player. I still think he might have been better off doing a little more maturing with just an 'A' on his sweater, but he was obviously going to be named captain sooner or later. I think he'll grow into the role.
Steve Webb for Commissioner.
