Alex Ovechkin is being moved back to the left wing this season.
New Capitals coach Barry Trotz will work to help Ovechkin become a more complete player and the first step will be a move back to his off wing. "He's better on the right side a little bit defensively, but his talent is on the left side," Trotz said. "And so if I'm going to maximize his talent, I need to get him on the left side. Now if he doesn't want to adjust defensively playing the left side, then we'll talk about maybe moving him back to the right. The stuff that he does on the left side, there's no coach on the planet who can teach (it). If he's willing to learn, I can teach him the other stuff." The Capitals captain had 51 goals and 28 points last season, but it came with a minus-35 rating. Sep 20 - 10:04 PM
