Alex Ovechkin Named Capitals Captain

The Capitals have named their 14th captain in franchise history: superstar Alex Ovechkin. The captaincy became open with last week's trade of Chris Clark. My first thought is this adds another layer to the Crosby/Ovechkin comparisons. Both are the face of their teams, including personality-wise, and now both are officially their leaders.
