I received an e-mail from the Capitals Media Relations Department today notifying all media that cover the team that Alex Ovechkin will make a special announcment at Kettler Capitals IcePlex on Tuesday afternoon.
My initial thought was "Is it possible that Ovie is going to relinquish his Captain 'C'?" I don't think so because a few weeks ago Tarik El-Bashir posted an interview with Bruce Boudreau on Capitals Insider where Boudreau said he told Ovie last month that he wants him to take his captaincey to the next level.
I don't think relinquishing it is the level that BB meant.
So, what could it be?
Could it be a new equipment endorsement deal since he ended his relationship with CCM and is reportedly signing with Bauer?
Or is Ovie going to stand in front of the masses at Kettler and say "we've learned from our mistakes of last few years. With guys we get during offseason we going to make next step towards Stanley Cup."
Readers, leave comments and let me know what you think.
