Alex Ovechkin appears to be pleased with the Capitals' new bench boss choice, Adam Oates.
The Washington captain is excited at the prospect of Oates wanting to play a more offensive game. "It's not blocking the shots and it's not dump and chase," Ovechkin said. "Any system that I played, I learn a lot. I'm an offensive guy, it's no secret to nobody. I'm pretty excited and very happy to hear the Caps signed that kind of guy that likes offense. But again, you play offense but you don't forget about defense."
