Our field reporter Emily live from Las Vegas: "If that hat could talk... what stories would it tell?"
From Pierre LeBrun, June 22, 2010, 6:30pm: Ovechkin meets the media in Vegas minutes ago
By Tim Wharnsby, CBCSports.ca, June 22, 2010:
Washington captain Alexander Ovechkin was asked on Tuesday what was the more important trophy to him. "I'll take both," said Ovechkin, who was looking forward to hitting the poker tables.
Meanwhile Lavo suggest to Ovi to stay there for another day: :-)

Henrik Sedin met Alex Ovechkin for the first time during Tuesday's media availability at the Palms Hotel. The Canucks' centre certainly recognized Ovechkin. Ovechkin, for his part, didn't ask Henrik to help him with his bag. “I think he recognized me, it's the red hair,” said Sedin, who's up against Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby for both the Hart Trophy and the Ted Lindsay at Wednesday's NHL award ceremony.
This is Henrik's first trip to Las Vegas and, to say the least, it's made an impression on him. “It's crazy,” he said. “We've got nothing like this in Sweden.”
Then again, Sedin has made an impression on Ovechkin.
“You can see how different players step up another level,” said Ovechkin. “It's good for the league, good for the players. They can see it's not the same guys winning every year.”
