Have you ever heard of the saying "there's one born every minute"?

22.14, which he accomplished as a rookie. Granted, that's a pretty damn good shooting percentage, but guys like Petr Prucha and Mark Parrish have been among the league leaguers in that category. All it really means is that they don't take 400 shots every season like Ovechkin.

I'm sure you're going to say this is me overrating him, but how can you say he's only gonna be good for 20 goals a year? He scored 29 as an 18 year old. Are you saying his career upside is tapped out after only his second NHL season?

Seems to me that you're underrating him a bit.
im not saying staal will never break 29 goals again... im talking about what he will do consistently through his career
