The original poster forgot to mention these... Gee I wonder why

2000 - Chris Pronger, won Hart and Norris

1999 - Eric Lindros, 93 points in 71 games

1998 - Peter Forsberg, 2nd in league scoring, 1st team all-star

1997 - John Vanbiesbrouck, got Florida in the playoffs again

It still doesn't change the fact some people on this board grossly overrate him

Looks like the curse was broken in 2005 and 2006 with Markus & Vincent

Ovechkin will only be in trouble if he has to face Willie Mitchell.

He shuts down the opposition's star players but you can score easy goals by deflecting the puck off his body.

psssh...whatever.

Ovechkin is highly "un-cursable."

You can't curse Ovechkin. He's just too good.

Everybody should know that by now.

Do you honestly remember what happened to Lindros in 1999? Refresher: playing arguably the best hockey in his career. (Even better than his Hart season or the first three rounds of the 1997 playoffs). Dominated physically and offensively. Suffered a serious internal injury during a road game (Florida, I think). Clarke wanted Lindros to fly home after the game in which he was injured. Lindros family balked at it. He needed some kind of operation. Doctors said afterwards that if Lindros would have flown home, he would have died.

The dissension between Lindros and Clarke started brewing after Canada lost in the 1998 Olys, when Clarke was the GM and Lindros was out of his league as captain. But after that injury, the relationship really deteriorated. I've always maintained that the internal injury, not the three concussions sustained in 1999-2000, was the start of Lindros' downfall. Even before the concussions, he was ineffective for most of 1999-2000, thanks largely to the Clarke feud. (He even apologized to his teammates during a closed-door meeting in the fall of 1999, stating that the Clarke feud had reduced his effectiveness).

I don't subscribe to this curse baloney (I don't even play video games). But to talk about 1998-99 as a great year for Lindros is foolishness.

The thing that everybody fails to mention is that unless you're Gretzky or Lemiuex, it's really really hard to post consecutive elite level seasons like it would take to get you on the cover of an NHL game. Usually, they go with the flavor of the moment and they have trouble in the next season. It happens.

And besides, everyone knows that Russians don't have souls, and are therefore immune to the dark arts of voodoo, wicca, and EA Sports cover hexes.

It's too bad there are no Russians in the NFL. They cut put one on the cover of Madden.

Wasn't Heatley replaced by Sakic after the car accident? How'd that turn out? Has Sakic been sent to the AHL yet?

The curse thing is ridiculous. Players are put on the covers of sports games/magazines for EXCEPTIONAL performance. If it weren't exceptional, players would keep doing it every year, and they wouldn't be on the covers of sports games and magazines.
