I remember this being discussed, several times over, in the UK when they found that rugby and even cricket players was starting to act like soccer players when they did something good (which was shocking).

As someone stated:

"Rugby is a game for goons played by gentlemen. Soccer is a game for gentlemen played by goons".

I think that ice hockey kind of ends up with Rugby in this case

Mauling someones face into the boards is at most a 2 minute penalty, since it's part of the game.

Taunting the opposition by going over the top when celebrating a goal is bad taste and will not be accepted.

I agree, i respect him for how much emotion he plays with. More NHL players need to take this page out of his book.

If it's especially important goal I like seeing scorer to get crazy.

But if those celebrations turn to silly dances on a regular basis, it's really annoying. They do that a lot in soccer as it's a very low scoring sport, but it's totally gay and embarrassing to watch. Another reason to dislike soccer.

Hockey is about scoring goals. Not celebrating them properly is like uttering in flat tone "My dear, as a matter of fact I'm done now" after having cold and embarrassed upper middle class missionary position sex.


And this applies to soccer too!

See Theo Fleury celebrating a meaningless regular season overtime goal during that earlier lockout.

He's clearly a disgrace to the game. The Caps should trade him to Montreal to protect their image.

Just an FYI to those that don't know, part of Ovechkin's post-goal celebration (when he kisses his hand and points up) is a tribute to his late brother Sergei, who died in a car accident when Alex was a child. Sergei wanted Alex to play hockey, and is essentially his inspiration for playing.

That's something that needs to be taken into consideration when judging his post-goal celebration.

oh come on, Kovalchuk was just really excited that he was putting away a heated rival in front of the home crowd, he was also only 17. A fist pump is not a huge deal.

In answer to the question posed earlier, I believe U.S. figure skater Scott Hamilton is the one who pioneered the back-flip.

I also see nothing wrong with Ovechkins celebrating. I personally think its awesome. Its like he celebrates every goal like its his first. He does the same thing when a teammate scores too. He is someone who loves the game.

Don't know why so many people are against it. Its like they have a stick up their ***.

Its kinda long. The goal and celebration are at about 2:42. It made me laugh when I saw it live. It still does.

people are really looking for things to harp on

I'm surprised by the comments that Ovechkin over celebrates his goals, he's damn excited when scores but it's nothing excessive or taunting the opposing crowd...except for the time in Buffalo but there was a series of events that led up to that...but he also celebrates just as much as when his teammates score

Ovy likes to score and loves to play hockey, stop finding things to whine about to whoever the broadcaster that said that

I always loved how Orr would celebrate his goals, with class. Ovechkin acts like he never scores goals. Just to show I am not bias I hated how Marchand celebrated his goals playing for Canada.

What's wrong with Ovechkin celebrating goals? He's happy. It's not like he's waving or pointing at the opposition, or doing some Terrell Owens showboat crap.

I wish more people would play with the outward enthusiasm of Ovechkin. The NHL's a league of freakin' robots.

I really could care less about what people outside of the Caps organizations and fans think about AO and his celebrations. I love his attitude and approach toward his business and his family.

Imagine Markus Naslund being happy for once in his life to score a goal instead of frowning his way up Bertuzzis bum.

Celebrations are great--its a GAME after all.

*NB: celebrating in someones face when its truly deserved is great too. Too bad theres too many North American idiots like Dale Hunter who try to make up for being schooled by cross checking after the play.
I'm curious, if Dion Phaneuf hammered Ovechkin into next week, and did a little dance on Washington ice to celebrate the hit, would you cheer?

I cheered when Dan Clearly hammered Dion Phaneuf into next week, and I wish Cleary would have done a little dance overtop of him while Phaneuf was staggering back to his feet wondering where he was.
