Ovie, We Hardly Knew Ya

Watched a bit of a game this past week with the Caps getting beaten handily by someone.  It was actually sad watching Ovechkin buzzing helplessly around the perimeter, rarely getting a shot, rarely looking dangerous.  I hope it was just a bad game for him because he’s far too young to have his abilities drop off so significantly.

In his first few years in the league, I loved how much he appeared to love every shift, every goal, every hit.   He truly looked liked he loved playing.  I suppose it’s easier to love it when you’re scoring 50+ goals a years and being considered the best player in the world.    He’s playing like he was just traded to Toronto!
