Saturday’s Washington Post comes with a five-page feature on Alex Ovechkin and his great decline. Former Caps beat writer Tarik El-Bashir and Rick Maese list a gamut of explanations– tactics, work ethic, bad attitude, weight, family, partying, schisms with teammates, and more. It’s what the kids call a “must read.”
There’s a lot of anonymous sourcing in there, but the conclusions line up well with what we’ve been observing here for a long time. What do you think?
