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.
