Ovechkin

From what I've read, Ovechkin is more of a team player than Kovalchuk. Ovechkin also seems to be more developed defensively. And Ovechkin broke Kovalchuk's record along with Bure's and Maltsev's. No one has dominated the U20 championship the way Ovechkin did since Wayne Gretzky. When Ovechkin comes into the league I think you might see Kovalchuk get more goals but Ovechkin be a contender for the Hart and Art Ross in a few years. I found video of Ovechkin and he looks quite good. A lot of speed, definetly. He has a very good wrist shot and on the videos he likes to go 5-hole. He can also make plays so it's not all about him. Both Ovechkin and Kovalchuk will be huge forces in the league but I think Ovechkin will be more rounded and that Kovalchuk will probably score more goals but get fewer assists than Ovechkin. There is definetly some great hockey coming up.
