I was going to jokingly say that one of these threads was going to pop up in the Germany/Russia game thread and here it is.

Would I trade any three members of the team I cheer for for Ovechkin? Yes.

Would I trade any single member of my national team for Ovechkin? There would only be one that would give me pause.

There are only about 100 lesser hockey players around that one can beef about and yet we see more Ovechkin and Crosby tear em down threads than anything. These are the two best players in our game today and they are very close as to who has the bigger impact over all. They may not be in Gretzky territory but you can look back on a player like Bobby Orr, as great as he is how many cups did the Bruins win when he was there.

It's damn hard to be a great player in the NHL. It's damn hard to be an impact player every night. Ovechkins time will come.
