Capital Struggles

With the second overall pick in my yearly money league, I felt like the luckiest guy in the world when someone picked Stamkos over Ovechkin first overall. But now it looks as though Ovechkin is actually human, even going as far as to somewhat complain about the coverage against him thus far in 2010-11.

I don’t expect it average-ness to last, but it is definitely something worth pointing out, especially when it’s not only Ovechkin who isn’t producing. Here is a look at their big guns through 10 games compared to last season.
