What Ovie has in offense he lacks in defense

Alex Ovechkin is one of the most exciting players to watch in the NHL. His offense abilities are far beyond humanly possible.

Living in New Jersey, I don’t get to see his games much, but during the playoffs I get exposed to his true, but strictly offensive talent.

As I watched the Penguins-Capitals series I noticed whenever Ovechkin does not have the puck he just glides around the ice as though he is not trying. I was very upset to see this because if he played defense the way he plays offense he would be a much better all-around player.
