Originally posted by drunk49er:screw ovechkin. he's singlehandedly made patrick marleau the second softest star in the nhl. dude thinks he's a basketball star or something. play hard on offense, take lots of shots. doesn't backcheck hard, won't go down to block shots, generally not much effort on defense. talented as hell, but he doesn't deserve to win a cup until he's willing to play both ways.
you think it's a coincidence that he's playing career low playoff minutes per 60 and they're winning? his overall minutes are not technically down, but that's because ot games are driving up the averages.
crosbaby with a concussion >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> ob***hken
You either love him or hate him. I have no problem saying he is not as complete of a player as Crosby, but I deep down believe he is superiorly talented and just hasn't dedicated himself to any of the other stuff. All opinion though.
It's almost a given that those who like Crosby hate Ovechkin too. (Not lumping you in with those guys, obviously, drunk -- considering the "crosbaby" comment
I have nothing against Ovechkin. Unlike Crosby, he doesn't annoy me gobbling up all NHL media attention no matter freaking what is going on. During Crosby's concussion STILL you couldn't stop hearing about him. He's the top player in the NHL. We get it. Now shut up about it. (directed at the media)
