Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin was recently on a Russian podcast where he made one major suggestion for the NHL.

The Washington Capitals season came to an early end after a remarkable run got them into the playoffs. However, they were no match for the New York Rangers, who easily swept them. Since then, Ovechkin has gone home for the offseason. He was recently on a Russian language podcast where he was asked what he would do if he could make one rule change to the league. His answer has been translated from Russian.
"Video replay. Why? Well, first of all, when you watch the video replay, the referees make decisions that are not very clear, whether there was offside, whether there was a goal. Well, it's kind of unclear to me. Now they canceled [the goal], and the same situation at the next game they counted it."

The Capitals might not be contenders anymore, but their fans still have something to root for, and his name is Alexander Ovechkin. The Capitals captain is within striking distance of Wayne Gretzky's all-time goal record as he enters the 2024-25 season just 41 goals behind the great one. He already broke one of Wayne's records, as he completed his 18th career 30-goal season this year.
Now all that is left for him is to get the big one. Goal number 895. Will it come next season? It is certainly possible, but only time will tell.
The entire podcast with Ovechkin can be watched below. However, this is in Russian.
