How Washington Capitals team of this season is better than the one from the last season? Back then you won President's Trophy as the best club of the regular season.
In principle there's no difference. It is the same team. We lost some players, we got some. The usual business.
What is your personal goal for this season? It is understandable that you want to win the Stanley Cup. Waht about the title of the top scorer in the league, or a sniper?
It is impossible to predict what you can win. You just go out on the ice up and play. I want to win all the trophies that you've mentioned. But what is most important is to get into the playoffs and play there.
Who do you think is the main competitor for individual trophies?
I've just played against one of them the other day. Stephen Stamkos of Tampa, one of the best snipers of the league. Yes you saw it yourself; he has created one scoring chance, and scored one goal. It's hard to play against him, he needs constant attention.
How long did you shoot the movie "Professor Ovechkin's head?
Do you wish that you would have the head in the locker that would give you advices?
God forbid! I already know what I need to do.
Is it true that you recently got hooked on Facebook?
Why do you think so?
Well, you hang out there all the time.
