I forget who I was reading, but someone suggested that Evgeni Grachev would be a good piece between the Alexes. I disagree. One Nicklas Backstrom is a good piece for Ovechkin. Considering that Grachev is a Center, I don't see that happening.
It also makes me sad as to how out of the loop publications are as to the Caps' state of things.
Per yesterday, I still wouldn't mind seeing Grachev in a Caps' sweater, but not as a replacement to Backstrom. That's just stupid.
But we all know the 1st round pick is going to be a D. Potentially 3 of their first 4.
I don't think it'll go 4-for-4.
