Gawd, I miss hockey. Here's TSN's top 10 by Ovie a year ago.
Ovechkin really matured last season, got more muscle and weight. He is the heaviest Caps player in the roster. He is heavier than Chris Pronger or Todd Bertuzzi.
He can now rock anybody (as if he couldn't do it before), even the bigger guys like Chara or Jagr.
Strength of Ovechkin
He can push you with his little pinky and you can end up with broken clavicle and a couple of ribs (Brian Campbell). He is as big and strong as ever. Unfortunately, and some of our readers would disagree, Ovie lost his explosiveness because of increased weight. Nevertheless he managed to score another 50 goals, got way ahead Crosby in assists, was second in the league in +/-.
Simply put, "he's unbelievable" and the hockey players know it, that's why he was chosen by them as the most outstanding, I repeat, most outstanding player on the planet Earth.
I wonder what kind of Ovechkin we'll see next season... That's gonna be interesting...
