yes they are essentially identicle players except ovechkin is simply better at their current stages... he is much better defensively, much more of a defined player then kovalchuk at 18.. from what ive seen i dont think he is as fast as kovalchuk but that doesnt mean anything, his quickness is still tops.. they say he has the same mean streak as kovalchuk but i didnt see it in the WJC... kovalchuk is more physically dominating... everything else is pretty similar but ovechkin has a much better all around game

here is an analogy i go by: crosby is gretzky, ovechkin is jagr, kovalchuk is bure, heatley is sakic
