"Most great goal-scorers, when they're in their early 20s is when they're putting up all their big numbers," Capitals owner Ted Leonsis said. "It's very, very unique and unusual for a player of Alex's vintage to be staring 50 goals in the face."
"I'm sure one day we'll look at it and get perspective on it," Capitals owner Ted Leonsis said. "But it's all a part of this process and he's not fazed by it. He said the other day 40's good but 50's nicer and he's going to get 50 goals. You can just tell he's very, very determined and he is a historic player."
