Ovechkin

I got a chance to go watch the Caps morning skate today and I can say one thing, this kid is amazing to watch just fuckin around with the puck. The whole team wasnt out and it was more or less just a chance to loosen the legs up ect but damn it was fun to see him.

Its basically the Washington Ovechkin...everyone else sucks. Kolzig is good though, he just has no defense to help so he takes like 40+ shots a game.

I agree. Marek Svatos is giving him a run for his money when it comes to goals scored by a rookie though. Ovechkin is better all around though, pure talent.

Ovechkin is just a fucking stud. I'm still pissed that he gets less publicity than Crosby. I really hope he wins the Calder if he keeps it up. He appears to be the complete package.

Did you know Kolzig is the highest paid goalie in the NHL? Crosby get more publicity because of where he is playing and whats going on w/ Pittsburgh. He's badass, but Ovechkins stats are better. Either way, if i was coach i'd be happy with either one on my team.

You sure? I always thought it was Khabibulin. He gets loads of money for sucking ass.

They had a thing like 2 weeks ago on espn about most overpayed/hyped players, and the ones that were underpaid/underhyped(if thats a word). Also who was up for trade eligibility. Kolzig was on the overhyped side, and his salary was 6.5 mil. Compared to like most goalies w/ 2-3 mil a season that i saw on there. Brodeur didn't even get more than him, and I was like wtf?

Alex Ovechkin gets less publicity because he's not from North America.
