Capitals GM Brian MacLellan wants to keep taking pressure off of Alex Ovechkin.
"I think for him, it's our job is to surround him with a little more depth, so there's not the pressure," MacLellan said. "I think he can play a lot more if he doesn't feel that pressure that he needs to win the games. As [Evgeny Kuznetsov] gets better, as [Andre] Burakovsky gets better — I think he really enjoyed playing with [T.J.] Oshie. I mean, that takes a lot of the pressure off him, offensively, and I think he can play longer given a good team, a deep team." He won the Rocket Richard Trophy after leading the league with 50 goals, but he finished behind Kuznetsov in scoring. That's a good sign that depth is being built even though Kuznetsov struggled to produce in the playoffs. He was also named a finalist for Mark Messier's NHL Leadership Award and MacLellan believes that Ovechkin reached another level in his leadership ability. May 18 - 4:13 PM
