    This was one game. If anything it shows how scary Washington can be. When Ovechkin was injured and suspended the Caps were still scoring goals like crazy. It also shows how valuable a guy like Semin really is.

    For fantasy purposes Ovechkin is like God (i said like God, not actually God) because he covers all bases. He has great +/-, lots of goals, lots of assists, and PPP, a decent amount of PIMs and the fact that he got 10 SOG in this game would be considered miraculous for some players. So even when he isn't scoring he will still make it difficult to beat him in that department on any given night.

    Other players might be better or more valuable than Ovechkin but for fantasy purposes there is no better player.

    • Ovechkin is the BEST fantasy value player by far in this day and age. Take a look, look at his +\- shots on goal, goals, assists, points, ppp; he is the greatest fantasy player and arguably the best player in the game today! Saying Ovechkin having 10 shots means he should score? Shots do not dictate whether or not a player should be getting goals, scoring chances should be used, there is a BIG difference. For fantasy purposes I will ask you..... who else has a chance of getting 10 shots in a game... the list is very short and nobody more likely then Ovechkin will get 10 shots per game. Before making moronic statements please consider this. Lets take ovechkins games played (359) and total goals (253) and add it up,
      253 / 369 = 0.685. He scores an average of 68.5% goals per game! Find someone with better numbers then that please? He is a superstar, he is a goal scoring machine. Dont cry because he didnt score in one game, chances are he will score in the next one.

      • Once again....

        I wasnt referring to fantasy wise...

        & i wasnt saying ovie wasnt good.

        I was trying to pointout to the people that think ovie is GOD that washington is not a one man team. and Ovie is not God.

        God wouldve scored. Thata all i was saying.

        Ovie is a good player..... how many times to i have to repeat myself?

    • I wasnt really talking fantasy wise... although a lot of people are responding wish fantasy-ish comments. which is fine.

      it was geared more towards the people who worship him in real life. my point was that washington isnt a one man team.

      Ov definitely has fantasy value. If i had first pick Id probably even take him for my fantasy team.

      and for the record... he doesnt suck... in real life.
      i have to keep saying it because some people arent reading all of my posts & they're basically just calling me stupid... lol
