You're going to be sorely dissapointed if you think Ovechkin has the potential to be half of what Lemieux is. Most reports I've read list Ovechkin as a solid two-way player with good size and good offensive instincts. He's been compared to Ilya Kovalchuk, but with less offense and more defense. He'll be a great player, one that every team would want, but one of the all-time greats, not likely.
