lets break that down a little more. Ovechkin is called the best player in the draft since Mario with a skill set and attitude much like Peter Forsberg. While Ovechkin could fall short of his potential and become and earlier developing Tanguay level player, he has a legit chance to be a Forsberg level player. would you really trade Forsberg for Tanguay and the 6th pick?
