07:19 AM ET 05.16 | The Caps suffered through the indignity, yet again, of locker room cleanout day, with this one including Alex Ovechkin's public blessing to a key cog. Ovechkin added that the team should also make re-signing Mike Ribeiro a priority, words that flattered the soon-to-be unrestricted free agent. "To hear it from him is nice," said Ribeiro. "He's a powerful player. He can score. He's a young player who can still learn a lot about the game, and how to play it." ... [Ovechkin] was held to a single shot on goal in Game 7. He had just one goal and one assist in the series. He led the NHL in power-play goals during the regular season (16), shots on goal (220) and tied teammate Ribeiro for the league lead in power-play scoring (27 points).

He can score. He's a young player who can still learn a lot about the game, and how to play it.



Learn a lot about the game...

Are you going to teach him how to dive Mike?

We should create an NHL all star diving team. I'd nominate Kesler as a first teamer.

Nope! Ovie's learned all he wants to learn about the game. And that's that. Take it or leave it.

The Great 8s World Championship run was short lived as the US beat Russia 8-3...Ovechkin did score and add an assist but guys named Galchenyuk and Stastny scored more for the Yanks. And some guy named Smith had 5 helpers...
