If you give Kovalchuk Ovechkin's body and meanness, I'd say he's a pretty similar player. His shot is without a doubt every bit as good as Ovechkin's, if not better. I'm not saying Kovalchuk is anywhere near as good as Ovechkin overall, but he's similar talent-wise, and basically only about one tier behind a guy like Malkin, if even that.
