Ovechkin Makes His First Mistake

According to the CP, "[v]eteran hockey agent Don Meehan and star Capitals winger Alexander Ovechkin have parted ways after five years together."

So what's the big problem? What follows:
It's believed Ovechkin's mother will be taking over her son's affairs. The 21-year-old is signed to his entry-level contract through next season.
I'm just curious - has a scenario like this ever worked out well? Granted, I'm over-reacting and am likely overly-pessimistic for no good reason, but does anyone read news like this and not think "Eric Lindros?" Ugh.
