On Saturday we shared a report that Washington Capitals forward Evgeny Kuznetsov has requested a trade. His requests, it’s reported, actually date back several years but are only now more likely to be honored.
Kuznetsov, 30, has at times been one of the league’s best and most entertaining players. But he’s never been without flaws, and those flaws have never been more present than they are right now. I’d argue that there is no player in franchise history more enigmatic than Evgeny Kuznetsov.
