In a poll of 318 NHL players, the NHLPA and CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada released a slew of results on topics from easiest coach to play for to best referee.
The Capitals were voted in the following three categories.
- Most overrated team – 35%
- Easiest coach to play for (Bruce Boudreau) – 21%
- Player most difficult to stop (Alex Ovechkin) – 27%
The most overrated title is surely one that aggravates fans, but if you consider when this poll was taken it may have skewed the results.
