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

Though I like Ovi, but I would say, had he stayed in Russia, hadn't he moved to the NHL, he would never have become a superstar. He would be just a good player, like many others. Be honest, he doesn't have superskills. He is gritty, powerful, yes. Obviously, he is NA style hockey player.
That's why, he will go back to the NHL, as soon as lockout is over, no matter what he says in Russia.
Honestly, I didn't expect from him a good performance in the KHL. But he exceeded my expectation. He's doing not bad. Look even at Malkin, obviously the best player in the world last season, yesterday was another pointless night, another lost game. He was out of temper. I have never seen him as irritated as he was last game. Even for him it's not an easy walk there. Look at Kane. He has shown absolute zero. 1 point in 12 games. Dinamo Minsk has parted with him. Nevertheless, my respect to him, at least he has balls to move to new league without fear of being accused if something would go wrong. Look at Rinne or Bryzg. Rinne sometimes looks like a circus clown. If he is one of the best goalies in the NHL, I should try too. Zdeno Chara. Since he joined Lev (Prague), Lev lost 8 games in a row.
So, don't be hard on Ovi. He is really doing not bad.
