I believe North American hockey has ruined Ovechkin. He was so great in his last season with Moscow Dynamo and in his first two seasons with the Caps, but now he is pure garbage.

Ovechkin has himself to blame though. Malkin and Datsyuk were not ruined by North American hockey. Ovechkin is out of shape and his skill level has gone down dramatically since his rookie season with the Caps. Back then he could beat people one on one, now every NHL defenseman can stop him with ease.

He is a different player now, and quite average in my opinion.
