    Ovechkin...

    So I know that this will probably start a string of arguments but...

    Washington beat the Isles 7-2
    Ovechkin had TEN shots on goal... he didn't even have an assist.

    Im just sayin.

    If he is SOOOOO great don't you think at least one of those 10 SOGs should've gone in?

    just sayin.

    • Wow you really dont know anything about good players. one bad game a good player has are you going to drop him for that. Fact: Ovechkin has 493 points in 369 games that is amazing. Fact:Ovechkin is going to lead the league in goals this year.
      Fact:Ovechkin is averaging 55 goals a year.
      Fact:Ovechkin has played 45 games this year and has 34 goals and patrick Marleau who has played 53 games only has 35 goals and 57 points. Ovechkin has 73 points.
      just because he didnt score a goal for you when you needed him to doesnt mean he is bad and yes he is the best in the league.
      Go ahead and drop him if he could not score goal for you on 10 shots. Exactly you wont do it so stop complaining. Hey at least you have Ovechkin on your roster.

    • I cant beleive this thread is still going, this is way to much fun to ignore, kind of like a tweener hissy fit. Way to stirr it up Carolyn!
      Oh, and BTW, I told you what would happen in an earlier string and I'm glad to see I havent completely lost my touch...... <grin>

    • i just like malkin better than crosby... its called an opinion.

      i never said malkin was a better player than crosby.

    • Do either of you read? or you just run your mouths?

      what logic am i using?

      ONCE AGAIN.... i was trying to point out that Ovie isnt God... not that he isnt good.

    • I said I LIKE malkin better then ovie & crosby... even thou malkin is having an off year.
      I NEVER said malkin is a better player...

      thats my OPINION.... maybe people should try to have an opinion of their own instead of jumping on the bandwagon.

      Some people on here really need to learn how to read and comprehend what's going on before they comment.

      seriously.

    • what makes you think you know about hockey?

      no one on here is an expert.

    • forgotten?

    • I guess last night he was lmao.... 1for1.....perfect lol!

    • 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.

      • 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

    • Carolyn your whole argument about how OV sucks cause he didn't get a point on 10 shots or 7 goals scored by the caps is ridiculous! 10 shots does not = 10 scoring chances! A shot from behind the blue line is not a legit scoring chance. I didn't see the game but knowing OV he was probably flying like always. He is one of the top 3 players in the league and if you say he sucks and is over rated cause of 1 game then you're an idiot!
