You misspelled Pietrangelo.

In all seriousness, when you find a young player that's fearless, has elite hockey IQ, is an elite skater, and raises his game in the postseason, you don't trade him short of a massive overpayment.

I am still thrilled we have a player smart enough to make passes off the back boards on the rush. When coach gives you fast wingers, a good C finds ways to use that speed.

He might already be the most creative forward on the roster. I've seen at least 3-4 instances in the playoffs alone of him thinking outside the box. Kid is good.

Something tells me no observer watching you play would say 'that guy's style kind of reminds me of Ovechkin...'

That whole series is fantastic.

Highly recommend watching the rest if you can find it.

They would just call him a dirty one trick pony who's bad at defense.

Don't call him Kuzma please, it's an entirely different name with different ethymology. He's Kuzya or Zhenya.

I know we all loved him shooting off the faceoff with MJ at the ready to get the rebound. It seems almost every game, I see something creative from him and they lead to scoring chances.

And Nick tried his behind the net pass, to no one. I hope more players are taking note of his creativity, and try some new things themselves. Ok forget that, just emulate him.

I know, Ovi called him like that once in an interview and I found it funny. Apparently, they call Orpik "Batya".

Yeah, that's a pretty respectful/deferential nickname in Russian, it would seem.

Quote:
I think the single most influential source of the term "batya" in Russian culture, in the context of this article, comes from the army.
In the Russian army, "batya" is what soldiers call a commander they adore and/or greatly respect, who acts not just as a superior, but a "father" to his soldiers. It conveys the highest form of appreciation that transcends formal rank.

Had a vision Kuz scores a Forsberg-style goal (which Tarasenko actually did recently) against Lundqvist. In overtime. In game 5.

If there's one guy on this team who could pull this move off, it's him. Ovi doesn't have the reach and Backstrom doesn't have the guts to pull off a Forsberg.

He's on the "Capitals Prospects" ticker up top. I wonder if he'll work out.

Me too. Even if Don Cherry blows a fuse, which would make it that much better.

I am thinking a self pass leading to a goal will be his next trick

Disrespecting the King

I feel like since Cherry *****ed about Ovi, we don't see his great celebrations anymore

Robptic Ovi was born. And hockey has not been as fun. He disrespected our King.

It goes back to the summit series. Old school North American hockey treats that as if it was yesterday. It was 43 years ago folks, let it go...

It's not Don Cherry. Ovi said he didn't care about Don. It's the imbeciles of NBC, namely Mike Milbury, Glenn Healy, PJ Stock and others. They called Ovi "selfish", "lazy", "heartless", "coach killer", "KHL bound"...

So, Ovi had to prove once again he was great. In utter disgust, they had to watch him win the Hart and 3 consecutive Rocket Richard trophies in the 3 following years. Nothing gives me more pleasure than the horror look on Milbury's face when Ovi scores 50 goals, including brilliant efforts like the one in game 2. I want to see the reaction of the pundits of NBC and the Canadian media when Ovi finally wins the Cup. It will be priceless.

You know how I know Ovechkin had a good game ? Milbury can't find anything to bash him.
I like that Jeremy Roenick defends Ovi.

They're just jealous. Team Canada got rekt by Team Russia at the WJC in 2011. I'm Canadian, and I have no problem giving credit where it's due.

Yep and it's really sad.

Canada is a great country in many ways but the hockey xenophobia is disgraceful.

It's a lot worse living in Canada and hearing all the poison spewing from the media's mouths.
