We get questions about Evgeny Kuznetsov on a pretty much daily basis. (Quick: Don’t expect him in DC until after 2014 Sochi Olympics.) The frequency of the questions was a bit bewildering considering how much we’ve covered the guy, but a tweet from RMNB reader and known sportsyapper @dylanwheatley83 tipped me off to something.

I checked out Kuznetsov’s wiki page, where I found this passage:
He has publically stated that he will never dawnd a Washington Capitals jersey as long as Alex Ovechkin is there. His reasons are based that Ovechkin’s work ethic may rub off on him as a bad influence.
