I don't think anyone has ever thought of Ovechkin as having above average hockey sense or being overly intelligent in his style of play. He plays with power, speed and an amazing shot.
He knows his strengths and does his best to utilize them, sometimes when up against well prepared competition it just doesn't work for him. I doubt that will ever change.
When playing against him you have to be ready to handle him or you will likely lose, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.
