Alexander Ovechkin Is The Man

Question for Donald S Cherry, does this sound like your sterotypical European hockey player?

“Ovechkin took it upon himself to lace up his skates and get out on the ice at the Capitals’ rookie camp in September, a week before the defending Southeast Division champions opened training camp for veterans.”I just want to support all the guys on my team,” Ovechkin said. “It doesn’t matter if they play in the NHL or the minors.”Coach Bruce Boudreau appreciated the effort.”When I blew the whistle, he was the first one to get over to me, the first one in line,” Boudreau said. “And I’m sure — because he’s this smart — he knew players would see that and they would say, ‘Well, if that’s how Alex Ovechkin operates, that’s how I want to operate.’ He never wanted any applause or anything. He just knew this was a good thing to do for the kids.”

Ovechkin is the guy you start a team with. He is an awesome talent and a phenomenal asset to both his team and the league. Grapes is picking on the wrong guy this time…
