IMO ovechkin is more talented than kovy ... but kovy is so determinated to dominate the league .. he play with passion and desire...
ovechkin is as fast as kovy(IMO) but kovy is stronger on his skate(that make him hard to stop him)..
on the other end Ovechkin has a EXEPTIONAL vision on ice (a la lemieux) !
but IMO kovy on his game is more hard to stop than ovechkin..
Kovalchuk : he plays a power forward type of game and his desires to suceed will help him to pass each step one by one .. and eventually became(i hope) the greatest russian player ever ...
potential: Mix between naslund and forsberg!(ouch!)
Ovechkin : He's still young but this guy is so mature it's incredible! he has IMO more upside than kovy ... but he will need a good place to develop (on a team that dont play crap hockey ... oh sorry.. trap hockey) ..
potential : i now i'll get killed for that but ... he could became as dominant as gretzky was at the time.. but he will have to work a lots ..
right now i would take kovy over ovechkin ( kovy is a sure bet)
future : if both guys reach their full potential i would take ovechkin anytime of the week !!! so much talents on him it's incredible..
but it's still too soon to tell..
just my opinion..
