I could not disagree more. Having lived in DC for the past three years and watched the Caps closely, I can say without reservation that Ovy is a once in a generation player. He may be flashy, he may have antics, but this guy is the most complete hockey player we'll see in this era. No one tries harder than ovechkin. His energy and enthusiasm for the game may be mistaken as arrogance or as being dirty, but I guarantee you the coaching staff would have no problem getting this guy to play. Not only is he gifted offensively, but he can provide a spark like Tootoo when it's needed. He hustles when it counts and his teammates rally around him like no other. He would sell tickets every night and back it up on the ice.
