Kovalchuk 100 goals. 5th youngest.

You've got an incredible kid on your team. Congrats to Thrasher fans and #17.

The guy is fantastic and fun to watch - not common today.
How do you feel about him rushing over to the net to fish out the puck in a tight game?
Is he thinking of his many milestones?
Just an excited kid?
Selfish and into his numbers?
Why did another guy not grab it?

I am not trying to cause trouble, just thought it was strange.

Apparently a few others thought it strange too. I never would have thought there would be a five page discussion about something so minor.

I don't think anyone else had time to grab it. He went to the net pretty quickly after he scored. Obviously, he's aware of the number but I wouldn't read anymore into than that.

He's a highly passionate player and a 20 year old kid. That's a combo that seems to lend itself to acts and/or behavior that some people see as selfish. But if you really take both into account, what he does isn't that surprising and certainly isn't selfish. He's impulsive like any other 20 year old, and he wants to win very badly. That is a combo I'll take any day.
