Why do guys have more points than Ovi, I will chime in.

Ovi was learning a new position and by everyone's accounts looked somewhat lost. Had MJ as a line mate who was soon scratched. Had grinder linemates no one expected to work well with him for 3 or 4 games. He is still largely solved by the league. Our new PP set up results in him barely even touching the puck. Still rushes North into the play, has E/W linemates. The new system, if he IS trying to play a team game, must be more confused than most players. Our team sucks. He is our only scoring winger and is keyed on heavily.

Was he dominating / doing very well in the KHL? If so, that says something.

Lord knows what, but something here is not working. Here, he is our captain. Strip that **** and get a vocal locker room leader that can yell at him. Maybe Poti, the only player I have seen angry this year.

Get him on a logical line, which we have recently done. And he seems to be showing signs of playing better.

The current PP seems set up to get one of three different shots:

--tap in on pass through the crease/slot
--Ovie on a weakside one-timer
--Slapper from the point

In that order. Pretty typical if you ask me, and those goals don't seem much different from years past.

Excuse the copy paste

The current PP seems to set up to get one of three different shots:

--Brouwer in the slot one timer
--Ribs cross ice pass to Ovie one-timer
--Green passing into Ovi's wheelhouse.

He had 19 g 21 a 40 pts in 31 games with a +13.

He's still leading Moscow Dynamo's stats.

Backstrom was second (still is) on the list with 10 g 15 a 25 pts in 19 games and +9.

Both seem to have done pretty damn well over there.

I'd kill to have Ovi scoring at 1.29 pts/game and a +13 right now. That would be a 50 goal pace in an 82 game schedule.

OV had similar numbers to Kovalchuk in the KHL, even now they have similar numbers. Malkin tore up the KHL.
