He easily has the ability to read plays like Kovalchuk, although more evident 2 years ago then last year, Ovechkin is an amazing play maker when he wants to be.

I can't believe I have to say this for Ovechkin but if it weren't for his linemates fanning on so many passes in 2010-2011, Ovechkin would've had a career year in assists.

Because of his goal scoring prowess his play making ability gets overlooked, assist's aren't the be all end all in determining play making skills but Ovechkin has recorded 4, 50+ assist seasons with only 2 those seasons being on an stacked offensive team.
