Below in the video, Alex Ovechkin when he was a 17-year old phenom in Russia.
Now he’s 32 and a definite first ballot Hall of Famer when he finally pulls the plug. He’s the ultimate power forward, complete with big shot and big size (6’3″, 235 lbs).
But it just goes to show that having a guy like this doesn’t guarantee a Stanley Cup, although who knows, maybe he and his Caps will get it done this year.
Ovie would’ve looked good in a Habs sweater. He might have joined the ranks of the truly legendary players in Montreal. But would the never-ending bullshit that swirls around this team make him bolt as soon as possible?
