Ovechkin On First Take (ESPN)

LOLLL Did anyone catch that?? Skip bayless and Steven A Smith actually talked about the NHL on First take.

FOr the people who dont know who those people are, they work on ESPN and talk about basketball 24/7.

I know most of you dont care what ESPN does or doesnt. Trust me, im one of those people. But i just thought this was funny though.

Steven A Smith pretending like he knows hockey! LOL. I bet they didnt even watch the Rangers/Caps game last night. They were too busy watching NBA playoffs lol.

Just thought id share for comedy purposes, so dont jump on me. I know ESPN threads dont go well here. heres the link

0 goals in the last 5 games. You can't argue with that. They said all the right things. It's just weird hearing it come from those 2 basketball wizards.

No its just insulting. Watching a monkey scream and throw things is smarter and more entertaining TV then Skip Bayless and Screamin Stephen.

Some errors:

1. 5 powerplays not ending up with a goal scored does not mean there was no impact on the game, the fact that ovi doesn't play pk and he is the caps best player is significant.

2. They called ovi the best player in hockey (I don't think they have watched hockey for years)....

3. LOL at them calling it ridiculous for refs to rig games coming from basketball analysts.

Is there even a video or a recording or really anything of Ovechkin actually saying this? Or just a tweet that Ovechkin didn't even tweet....

They actually think he's the best player in the league. That's just unbelievable to me.

Believing that Crosby is the best player is actually pretty outdated.

All his injuries opens it up for discussion. Plus, Ovechkin will probably win the Hart this year. . .

No check the link. Ovechkin is not gonna actually come on air and talk in First take. Skip Bayless and Steven A smith (two basketball fanatics), decided to talk/debate about the controversial comments ovechkin made after game 7 about the officials.

Watch the link

Edit: NVM i didnt kno that you were asking about what ovechkin said to the officials. My bad

To think people really get upset that ESPN doesn't talk about hockey enough.

I really hope Caps fans aren't blaming the refs for their loss in this series. If anything, blame Henrik Lundqvist. You can say that the rest of the Rangers' team sucks at hockey... but Hank is the reason you guys lost.

It was reported by Slava Malamud, who is as legit as they come. Some annoying Caps blogger also has it, reporting it as if it were said to all the press in the locker room: http://www.russianmachineneverbreaks...m-has-deja-vu/

No one is upset bro. Just thought it was funny that ESPN actually talked about NHL on FIRST TAKE, which is hosted by two dumb basketball idiots, who know nothing about hockey

I was speaking in generality not about posts in this thread. When you have dumb stuff said like this I'm glad they barely talk hockey on that network.

All Skip Bayless is saying is the Capitals would have won if they played Tebow

Hart is for MVP, Ted Lindsay is for best player...

Best player in the game? Maybe 4/5 years ago. He's a great player and it's nice to see him finding his spark again (roaring back ) but he's not widely regarded as the greatest.

I love First Take with Skip and Stephen A, but they don't know hockey.

Yeah, The fake righteousness is absurd. Sports are big business with huge money flowing around. The notion that suggesting corruption is some kind of outrage is ridiculous.
It wouldn't surprise me at all if the NHL steered outcomes in playoff series. It would speed up their parity goal/agenda of letting every team have a turn with the cup. I am not saying they are rigging games. I am just saying that it isn't an outrage to suggest it as possible or even probable.

Hart isn't for best player, otherwise Tavares wouldn't be getting a sniff of it
