wow, you're real mature. calling him Ovachicken. And of course he's a super star. People will take his picture, people will want his autograph, people we want to talk to him. But the guy just lost a huge game, he was talking on his phone, he obviously didn't want to be bothered but one retard had to be stupid and shove a camera in his face, you think any other player wouldn't of reacted the same way. What the hell do you think Avery would have done?

don't post if you're just going to make fun of players you don't like, because if that was Crosby you would be backing him all day.
so the reason your defending ovechkin is because he is a player you like, and not because of his supposed justified actions, and if it was crosby or another star player you would be lambasting them, im a penguins fan and i agree that crosby can be at times a whiner, and that ovechkin or 'the great ape' as i like to call him can be arrogant and sulky, the main issue here is that the guy, when it was clear the russians werent going to win, threw a hissy fit and couldnt play due to an 'injury' that miraculously healed when the russians got a powerplay.

Maybe its because i dislike ovechkin after his hit on gonchar and that he is probably the best player in the league in terms of player prescence, but to me he will always fall in to that category along with mike richards and jeff carter of players i cant stand.

Please read my previous posts before you try and rip me. I clearly stated that if it were crosby i would be taking his side aswell. Badat is just a Crosby supporter and an Ovechkin hater, so I just said what he would do.

And I hardly call getting hit in the hand with a puck a "hissy fit" and if you watched the rest of the game, he came back like 3 minutes later, and played moer than just the power play. He's a competitor, just like guys like Crosby.

And I can't blame you for being a Pens fan and hating Ovechkin, he's a rival I understand that. But again, I said i'd protect Crosby if this happened to him in a previous post, so please don't lambaste me because I'm a Caps fan
yeah maybe i was too harsh, but i do see ovechkin as a player who seems at times to lack heart, and when he gets frustrated, do silly things, punching a camera and dirty plays (whether intentional or unintentional), i would probably add kovalchuk and malkin in that group as well, which at best can be seen as competitve and at worst childish and unsporting, obviously as a caps fan you probably know which side of this ovy falls on better than i do, ill admit i only watch wasington on center ice when either the penguins or an atlantic division game isnt on, and as a pens fan my view will differ, ill assume he is a overhyped matt cooke style player (who i love btw, like colby armstrong before him) as most of the 'bad' ovechkin stuff i see is only via youtube.
I would never say he lacks heart. and if his cheap plays are intentional or not. They happen because, A. he skates wide, and B. he's extremely physical. He never does stupid things when games matter. he's very smart about that stuff. And I also love Cooke from his short stint in Washington, gritty player who's not afraid to get involved, but like Ovechkin gets himself in sticky situations because of his physicality
agreed that ovechkin never lacks heart when theres a chance of victory, the 7 game series between us last year showed, which is my favourite seies of stanley cup playoff hockey, was just a shame it couldnt be the eastern conference final, maybe this year, hey, and yeah cookie is one of the unheralded players in pittsburgh along with mike rupp in my opinion who have brought great depth and mean we dont have to play godard every time things could get nasty.

Nice to talk to a caps fan who doesnt bring out the crosby sucks argument too....
Even as a Caps fan, that was one of the greatest series I've ever seen. And Rupp has had a tremendous year for you guys.

And yeah, don't worry. I'm not a big fan of Crosby, but he's a top talent in the league. I do hate when people say either one of them sucks. just ignorant people. But hey man, stay active on this site. We need more people on here like you. even if you are a Pens fan:cheeky4:
ill be here when the kid lifts no 4 for the burgh in june :cheeky4:
you mean the great 8 right>;)
if you get a shut down defenceman and varlamov fit maybe :bt your boys and new jersey, for the exact opposite reasons are the biggest threats
yeah, I really wanted Volchenkov, but the way the Sens have been playing they won't trade him. But if we could get out hands on a guy like Jackman from St. Louis I would be pretty happy
yeah volchenkov is really good he and his defensive partner (name escapes me) have kept crosby to 2 goals in all the meetings between pens and sens, he also has a cannon on him... him and green, would be an absolute blue line force in terms of offence, not that the caps need it.

i wanted us to take a shot at scott neidermeyer but he hasnt looked great in the olympics, damn salary cap, wish we could have kept scuderi....

i think weve derailed this thread from the ovechkin is a very naughty man thread too, lol, great stuff!
YEah, c'mon. Ovechkin is evil, man. He is the anti-christ of hockey. HE's a bad, bad, man. ;)
he is not the messiah of washington- he's a very naughty boy!
trade day is pretty important to be honest. were a couple of peices short your 1 peice short and jersey are pretty much there, maybe 1 defenceman short as well.

Jus' stirrin' the pot. ;)

Seriously he is one half of the best thing to happen to the NHL, possibly ever.

The Whole Crosby/Ovechkin thing is great for the sport. Hopefully someday Malkin will get traded and his name can be tossed in there with them.

It would be great to have Malkin in LA so that the League would have a 3 headed marketing monster.

pens fans say no, its selfish but we love the 2 headed monster.

hows about staal for ovechkin :p im sure i could like him a bit more in black and gold, its not like theres a salary cap or anything, well throw in a 7th round pick to make up for the 1 spot between em in the entry draft. i jest of course, bob errey couldnt cope without mentioning staal had a long stick :)

traded and his name can be tossed in there with them.

It would be great to have Malkin in LA so that the League would have a 3 headed marketing monster.
and wouldnt bettman want malkin to be in the Iowa Thrashers :)
IF Elias convinced Kaberle to waive his NTC to come to NJD then the Devs are really scary. They need someone to get the puck to Kovy, Elias, and Parise.

I have no idea what NJD could even offer Toronto that would interest Burke, after they emptied the cupboard to get Kovalchuk.
Zubruis 2nd this year, 2nd next?, its boom or bust for new jersey next couple of years. would get burke in favour with leaf fans for gettin picks. maybe a prospect as well, tollefson comes to mind
Sorry but Kabs is 1st+ material. Without a 1st or bluechip prospect I think the Leafs just keep him, and exptend him.
yeah new jersey doesnt have that much to offer for him, that was best i could see, penguins could though as could washington,

to TOR
Caputi/ letestu (id prefer to give up let cause caputi could be the winger were looking for)
1st 2010

to Pit

dont know how that fits in cap wise though, whats kaberle's salary, considering i see one of goliogski or letang going in the off season, probably go-go.

and i love jordan staal 'mr shorthanded'. shenners great and kadri is one for the future fancy givin up a 1st in 2012 as well :p

I dont blame Ovie for reacting the way he did and that doesnt make him a crybaby, IMO.
He was likely already in a foul mood after getting blown out by Canada and then someone is taping you while youre having a PRIVATE conversation on the phone? Give me a break! That guy is lucky thats all Ovie did.
suppose thats he pressure your under being a 'superstar', ovechkin was obviously unhappy with his poor game against canada, i think tbh he didnt have a great olympics, apart from the hit on jagr... he was unable to get that superstar presence on the 2nd grandest stage of them all.. and didnt want the media spotlight, however due to his on ice abilities, his off ice abilities are constantly scrutinised.

best reply for him is to help washington win the stanley cup.

as a pens fan i hope he doesnt :)
I have to disagree. The Olympics with the entire world watching is the biggest stage.

The Cup? Well ya, Tthe Caps have a damned good chance. I am still not shying away from my preseason pick of the Flyers coming out of the East though.

Although for better or worse the Caps do have Backstrom, aswell as Semin and Ovechkin who are all leaving the Olympics very disappointed. Mike Green was snubbed by Canada so he has some motivation. They could very well be the most determined team amongst the top of the East.

Be interesting to see how a Pissed off Brodeur finishes the season.
if i was good enough to be a nhl player id pick a stanley cup over a gold medal, he wont recieve the same levelof embarassment for not winning a gold medal as marion hossa has for being on the wrong side twice, theres at least 10 youtube tributes to that ;).

whats the odds on two in under a minute on marty again?
