You can be MVP of your team and not be the best in your nationality...
Regardless you missed the point...
I said in recent years (meaning the last 3 years). Ovechkin didnt win any of the 3 listed. Datsyuk won Kharlamov 2 yrs ago and this year. Now follow my logic. Ppl on HF boards say Datsyuk is overrated this and that. Ovie is never overrated when discussed among the best in the league. When ppl say Ovie > Dats its generally accepted. When ppl say Dats > Ovie its Dats is the most overrated on HF. Yet Datsyuk is the one with anything to back up his case and his numbers suggest he is a bigger difference maker of the two. Yes this year Ovie is starting to look back in form but he's only been good for 30 or so games.
