Nobody misses more shots wide or flubs more one-timers than Ovechkin. Never seen anyone who was as highly touted MISS so many open shots. He's a volume shooter. He needs to take 10 shots to even have 5 hit the net and hope that one goes in. He's the hockey equivalent of Carmelo Anthony. I'd much rather have Backstrom.
I laugh at some who say Ovechkin. The guy hasn't won jack ****. He's a lazy ****. Just look at Del Zotto's goal tonight. Guy has no heart.
Who gives a crap if he hasn't won anything? Ray Bourque didn't win jack till his last year. does that mean he's a loser? No heart? The guy has 59 points in 51 career playoff games...i think they said he's the quickest guy to 30 career playoff goals other than Joe Sakic.
He was the only guy on the Caps roster that was a consistent threat. Caps problems were NOT that AO wasnt playing well..its that, besides AO, Backstrom and Chimera the rest of their roster was completely shut down.
