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

I don't think it has much to do with defences "figuring him out" or they would've done it by season 2 or 4.
The problem is the dead puck era 2.0 has been going for at least a year now and it makes it difficult for Ovechkin to do what he does best. Just a lot less open ice when you're allowed to push the physicality further. Plus tbh he has lost maybe a bit of an edge but I'd say it has the most to do with an increase in interference/physical type hockey.
