Ovi can't even light up the KHL, can we finally admit that he's past his prime?

Anyone who watched the games knew Ovechkin was not in Crosbys realm or even the realm his numbers made it look like he was in.
I've been arguing this with OV fans since he came into the league but was passed-off as a homer Penguins fan (even though I'm a Canucks fan). Ovechkin has always been one of my favourite players but I felt like you could clearly see his short-comings. He just wasn't on Crosby's level and his flash-and-dash was a bit deceptive.
