YWT #24- Stanley Cup Recap

Every fanbase has those players. Those players that, despite their absolute domination of your team, you can’t help but respect them. Alex Ovechkin, in leading the Washington Capitals to the 2018 Stanley Cup, has cemented his spot on that list for just about every fan in the NHL. For a long time, Ovechkin was considered the best player in the NHL who didn’t have a championship. The whispers weren’t whispers, so much as blatantly spoken:

Yeah, he’s great, but he can’t win a Cup.

I’d love to have him on my team, but he chokes in the playoffs.”
Can’t get past the second round.”
And other things of that nature. But in winning the Conn Smythe as playoff MVP, the Great Eight has put those talks to bed, for good. Ovi now rests on a similar level as his longtime rival, Sidney Crosby. He got his title.

The Cup, Ovi and Respected Rivals

On this week’s You Would Think, the boys talk about Ovechkin, what the Cup means for his legacy, and where Washington goes from here. They also talk about other players who cross the “hatred/respect barrier,” as well as the recent struggles of the Philadelphia Phillies, and the boys put a bow on the Bryan Colangelo saga in the Philadelphia 76ers organization.
