3 goals, as Ovie-like as they may look, in seven games is hardly numbers to get excited about with Ovie, either.
KHL is not a high scoring league like the NHL, points leader has 16 points in 15 games.
Radulov has 15 points in 14 games
Malkin has 9 points in 9 games
Ovechkin has 8 points in 7 games, nothing wrong with that
Oh, so Ovechkin is performing roughly the same as Alexander Radulov (NHL career high 44 points), Jori Lehtera (1 point in 7 career AHL games), and our 20 year old prospect. That's reassuring...
Ovechkin was the best player in the world. Him putting up a point/game and less than half a goal/game in the KHL is not him being even close to "back."
I don't know if you are watching, but I wouldn't say Ovechkin's hockey IQ which has been the problem the last couple years has been any problem. Its been the finish, which really hasn't been the problem the last 2 years, besides of course the one timers which before I think it was you(correct me if I'm wrong) that was complaining that he was trying to hit the puck as hard as he could on a one timer, well he's not anymore if you look at PP one timer, its just a nice and smooth one timer that he got the air under the puck to get it over the goalies shoulder(holy **** run on sentence).
Its time for Nicky to just sign in the KHL, it doesn't seem the the SEL teams are truly interesting NHL players at all. If he isn't going to make much money or likely with the SEL none, he should just stop being a pansy and go to Dynamo.
Brooks Laich's team Kloten lost against Tyler Seguin's team EHC Biel yesterday, 4 to 3. Laich remain pointless, made an auto-goal on the first goal for Biel and took 16 minutes of penalty, 2x2 for excessive roughness and 2+10 for checking to the head.
With all the KHL hate on this forum, those NLA goalies are ****ing horrid. Some guy scores spectacular goal, and Canadians on HFBoards first reaction is "KHL goalies suck!!!!" But all the good Canadian boys going to the Switzerland playing against horrible goalies.
