How do I love Ovechkin?

Let me count the ways:

1: Sexy Ugly.

2: How he starts the game with a big open ice hit to Steve Begin. like saying 'hello, my name is Ovechkin, not only will I undress multiple defensemen but I'll also take on the grinders.'

3: How he uses the opponents players as a screen before ripping and impossible slapshot, from an impossible angle to an impossible corner.

4: How he can somehow be a finesse player but also register 5 teeth rattling hits against players of Komisarek's stature.

5: How he seems to find space on the ice when there shouldn't be any.

6: How he never gives up and manages to be a threat ever second hes on the ice.

7: How he considers it a special day because he got stitches AND broke his nose. Oh ya and he scored 4 goals in a game. For the second time this season. And also registered and assist.

8: How his boyish enthusiasm does not seem at all affected by a monstrous contract.

9: How he glams up his outfit with Yellow laces and a tinted visor.

10: How even though he is speaking another language you can tell that he has a great sense of humor.

Andie I remember a certain player named Eric Lindros when he first came into the league. He was supposed to be the next one. He was like Ovechkin hitting everything that moved.When you hit like he does you will have to expect that you will be hit by much bigger players than he is.Getting hit game in game out sooner or later you will start to run into health problems. Just ask Eric Lindros and he was a much bigger player size wise than Ovechkin will ever be. What I am trying to say here is that I think the Washington Capitals should let him understand that he should cool it down on the hitting department before the same thing happens to him as it did to Eric Lindros that is all I am saying.
