I watch a lot of games and I have seen them loaf just as much as Ovechkin. Can you blame them when they play on ****ty teams? The NHL is very taxing on the body and a lot of guys give up when the squad is not there.
Like I said, I am not trying to convince you. In fact, Ovechkin has his faults and he needs to step the **** up. My point was merely is that from all my viewing and just playing the sport a lot over the years, JI and Nash float just as much as Ovie when **** goes wrong. At least that's what my eyes see.
And to your point, DH did bench a loafing ovechkin last season. Too bad Ted was not having any of it.
