After reading an ESPN article...

I now think that his Kovalchuk remarks were more ego...


Ovechkin wasn't thinking about any of this at the combine, mind you. If his game resembles Ilya Kovalchuk's, so does his brashness. At one point, a North American prospect (who'll remain nameless) was about to lose his lunch after struggling in the VO2-stationary bike test. Ovechkin was walking by him and said in perfect, unaccented English: "Way to go. Really good." The poor, weary kid looked puzzled and might well have been thinking that crimson-clad Ovechkin was with the Red Cross.
