I always believed Ovie should be with Ribiero purely on Ribiero's ability to dangle; that buys time for Ovie to get open and it's tougher to defend those 2 on one line with how slippery Ribiero can be.
Oates finally came to his senses and put them together. Prior to that he had Beagle and Crabb with Ovechkin which is just pure garbage.
There is a definite lack of talent. They needed to cut ties with Semin but instead of going out and trying to get a top 6 scoring winger like Bobby Ryan, they ****ing go out and get that scrub Wolski.
