At the end of Alex Ovechkin’s speech following the Washington Capitals’ Stanley Cup celebration parade, he whipped the crowd into a frenzy by dropping an f-bomb in the vein of Jason Kelce and Chase Utley in Philadelphia.

“WE’RE NOT GONNA FUCKING SUCK THIS YEAR! WHOOOOOOOO!”

I think Ovechkin’s been drunk for most of his time awake since the Capitals won the Stanley Cup last Thursday, which included an amazing Saturday spent at Nationals Park during the day and throughout the greater DC area at night.

Will the Caps suck next year? That’s still too far away to determine, but Bovada has them as 12:1 favorites to win the Stanley Cup, tied for the seventh-best odds in the NHL with the Penguins. The Lightning, at 9:1, are the favorites today, per Bovada.
