If you think the Russian Super League is "BARELY" (only one L ) a step down from the NHL, then I think you're the clown. The NHL is superior to every other league in the planet.

And yeah, he's just the flavor of the year (I do think Ovechkin will be good, but people HIGHLY overrate prospects here) two years ago it was Bouwmeester, before that it was Lecavalier, before that it was Thornton, before that it was Daigle, and before that it was Lindros. Next year it will be Crosby, and so on....

All of them had the same kind of hype as Ovechkin (if not more.) As much as everyone thinks he's a once a decade prospect; he's not.
