Wtf are you serious? When he used to do this people used to rag on him for being a "one-trick pony" now he uses that respect he receives barreling down the wing to set up Chimera for an easy cross-crease -- who misses, and Ovechkin receives the blame?
This regular season is a write-off statistic wise for Alexander Ovechkin. It's all about the playoffs this year for him and the whole Capitals. They've been facing adversity all year and shown flashes of the team they used to be -- in both good and bad ways. Let's see how far they make it in the playoffs before we begin proclaiming "he's back" or "they suck".
Eh, Ov looked a bit like he was channeling Cheechoo on that play.
“there is no real me. Only an entity, something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours, and maybe you can even sense that our lifestyles are probably comparable, I simply am not there."
You can never doubt the guy's effort, which is why he has racked up alot of OT goals in his career.
I've watched him probably half of the Caps games this year, and he just doesn't seem to have the hockey sense that the best in the league do.
This is interesting, cause i have noticed the same thing. I mean, i have watched about 15-25 games of Ovechkin since he came to the NHL. I was amazed how much raw talent and power he had. It almost seems like he has lost his talent level. Which, i realize, is impossible. But yet still, he looks like a mere mortal on the ice and two years ago he was "the man" among boys.
