Yes, he has no class. Yes, his antics get old. But this city needs a star player that brings media attention. The Preds need the publicity, and Ovie would bring both that and a superstar scorer.
The guy that put the dagger in the heart of the US at the Vancouver Games wouldn't bring publicity? We'd be on national TV every other week.

Sure Ovechkin has more individual hardware, but Crosby has a Stanley Cup and Olympic Gold. He's a natural leader, a clutch player, and a much better fit for our organization's culture. Ovechkin is an overgrown child, and he plays like one: he runs opposing players, takes stupid penalties, and can't stop running his mouth. Nashville doesn't take very kindly to those kinds of athletes, regardless of how talented they may be. If you want someone who's marketable in this part of the country, you go with the humble (at least on camera) professional.
