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.
