I agree with everyone who says Ovechkin is a much better player at 17 than Kovalchuk was at that age. There is simply no comparison. Ovechkin plays like a man, Kovy played like a kid high on sugar. The question is: how will they develop over the course of their careers?

I expect Ovechkin to become a Sakic/Modano/Fedorov type of player; but not a player of Lemieux's or Gretzky's magnitude. Kovalchuk to me has some magic about him. I guess will see in a few years.
