I guess it depends on your definition of a steal. I would define it as picking a player who has shown to be significantly better than many or all of the players drafted above him or around him. Regardless if they happen to be picked 3rd or 22nd. And I guess that was a bad example, I really dislike Ovechkin and undervalue him as a player.
