Yeah... that's true. I'm more referring to the explosiveness in Ovi's skating during the years he was playing well, since something like that seems to be a product of physical strength and stamina. He doesn't seem to have that anymore. Though like you said, it's probably more due to loss of his drive. There's no explosiveness when you simply don't hustle.
Also, I don't see why people gave him **** for his celebrations, I thought they were awesome.
