For me, I've really started to hate Ovechkin's antics. The over-the-top celebration of regular season goals, repeated questionable hits and incidents (and won't fight to back it up), shoving some poor girl's camera, digging up the loonie and breaking it in half...it's all signs of a giant dbag.

The average idiot might think those things are fun, but I'm finding his brand of fun more disrespectful and annoying with each passing day.

That's just my personal take, though. In a general sense I agree with you, his personality is better for selling the game to new fans, but winning sells tickets, too. There's probably an argument to be made for both players in that regard.
It would help if Crosby wasn't a talking points robot.

Richards has the same problem, but looks even more uncomfortable when on camera.
