Ovechkin is an outstanding prospect, just like Spezza, Lindros, Lecavalier, Thornton, Daigle, and others were before him. Like some of the other super prospects, he may fulfill all his potential and become an elite player; however, its very possible that he will fall somewhere short of mega-super-duper star. He is not the Second Coming folks.
