Kovalchuk is a bigger,more fiery, rough and tumble version of Pavel Bure. That's something that doesn't happen very often, maybe once in 30 years. Ovechkin I haven't seen so I can't comment with first hand knowledge, unfortunately. What I've heard about him is basically what was said above. He's a model professional, very intelligent on the ice, with a skill level near Kovalchuk's. The intelligence is what is most intriguing because the best player in the game was Gretz and the reason he was so good was his unerstanding of the game and smarts on the ice.
