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

I wouldn't say that Ovechkin's days as a great player is done, but goal scorers typically peak at a fairly young age. I'd agree that he's past his prime, but he's still a deadly player. He should have a pretty good upcoming season (whenever that happens) if he sticks to his commitment to get in better shape, and Backstrom stays healthy.
Backstrom's a Center. They typically control the play. Ovechkin is an absolute beast of a winger. Super skilled offensively. Wicked shot. Big, powerful, aggressive. Appreciate him as arguably the top winger in the world and stop worrying about if he's as good as Crosby or whatever nonsense concerns you.
