Ovie is one of the best players all around the world, but very banal. He has just one way - gets the puck, hits an opponent, runs a tray along the board, enters the zone and fires. But to play original and sophisticated - that's not about Sasha."
That's what made him such a great player. He'd skate right into your zone and let a shot go and score.
