From the Washington Post’s Alex Prewitt, who passes along the response of Capitals coach Barry Trotz’s to the comments made Wednesday by Sportsnet analyst Glenn Healy on Alex Ovechkin:

“Get his agent to talk some sense into him. It’s his mom! His mom’s his agent! No chance. He is not a coachable player and the numbers just don’t lie.”
