Have never seen anything like it, not just in hockey, but not in the NBA or NFL either.

Vince Carter in his Toronto Raptors days maybe, but he suffered a pretty serious knee injury.
I personally believe a bit part of the blame is on the Cap's coaching staff. They don't play a game that really favors Ovechkin's abilities, and he hasn't really played with players who can make up for his failings.

It all started when their morale was crushed by the Habs in '10
