What I meant to say was, AO is undoubtedly top three talent wise in the league, but he has accusers, and they say he comes with issues, which accusations if true would be a concern despite his world class talent.
More specifically, and here do not shoot the messenger, I would have alluded to posts over the past few months indicating that IN THEIR OPINION, allegedly, like Ty Cobb was known to come in spikes first when stealing bases, AO, again allegedly, does not, or does not adequately, make effort to not hit a player
(even if in the face)
who is going down --- or is already down (and helpless) --- to block a shot.
In other words, he is not just capable of playing tough, but even dirty or truly mean.
Some don't want him, if that is the case.
I don't know that such is true. But from what little I have seen of Ovechkin, I wouldn't jump to a conclusion one way or the other without actual facts.
I regret the poor wording; thank you for bringing it to my attention. I stand by this clarification.
