He's best doing what he does.
There's a reason why he won the Hart and Zetterberg/Datsyuk didn't.
Ok that's a poor excuse for not becoming a better all around player. Yzerman was a scoring machine but what did he ever win? Nothing, he made himself into a selke caliber forward and the Wings started winning cups. If Ovechkin works at it, then I think he can make himself into a really good defensive player as well, which I think makes the caps a better team.
and why did the Wings win last year? In big part due to the fact that there three best players are all great two way players.
