It seems like the hockey world gets a chance to make a “final judgment” on Alex Ovechkin about two or three times per season. Ovechkin’s latest legacy-redefining moment could come now, as bellicose Bruce Boudreau makes way for former Washington Capitals great Dale Hunter. Mike Milbury and Keith Jones seem unanimous about Hunter’s ability to transition from the OHL to the greatest hockey league in the world, but what are the odds that Ovi will snap out of his relative funk?

    Milbury has hated Ovechkin since he got in the league. I’m fairly certain everyone knows that by now. He doesn’t like the Capitals in general. Also a known fact. Ovechkin does need to step up, but Milbury needs to leave his prejudices home and try to be impartial for a change. That would be a whole new experience.
