There are certainly some merit to all of the criticisms on OV, and personally, I think that's what's holding him back from being as good as he could possibly be. But, he's very young. You see it in his game, he's emotional. When he gets the puck in tight he'll get excited and take a shot when the best move would have been to wait out the goalie, or maybe a pass. His skill level is undeniable and he's still the best offensive force in the NHL but I think he's still a little too immature at this point, but that will come. It's scary to think how much better he can get.
