    Default Even Ovechkin is a fan...

    http://www.gq.com/sports/profiles/20...?currentPage=1

    Page 2: "He loved the Penguins (the future home of his nemesis Sidney Crosby, who played his first NHL game a day after Ovechkin). He was a fanboy and a peer at once. Even as he collected their cards, Alex had a pretty good idea of his own growing ability to go toe-to-toe with any one of them, including his idol, Mario Lemieux. The signs were there."

    Well, we can't really hate him now can we?

    That he is, but I love him as a player. I'd pay to see him play, love his energy, the flair, determination. I also love the fact he's European and playing skilled hard nosed hockey, hate that he's a Caps player and some of his dirty plays.

    I love to hate him. He is definitely one of those guys I would love if he was a Pen. Don't get me wrong I'd ***** about him but yeah and so he isn't a Pen so **** that ****** bag.

    And to think, if we didn't have a draft lottery in place in 2004, Ovechkin would probably be a Penguin and Malkin a Capital. Funny how things work out.

    Good to know that there's something bouncing around up in that empty head of his. It might not be much but at least it's there

    Still a ******bag though

    He's just one helluva hockey player, regardless of who he plays for. He has all the tools and skills to be considered one of the top 3 of all time...a two-way game would improve those chances dramatically.

    top 3 of all time is a huge stretch man. I don't even think he is the best right now. Top 10 maybe. My NHL history knowledge is not great tho. Fantastic goal scorer sure.

    Might not be enough pucks in the bag, if he in Sid were on the same team.

    I take my 2 1/2 year old grand daughter to the park most days and there is one sweet kid--Colin--who is a big Ovie fan.

    He noticed my Pens hat and started to boo me.

    So, I told him that Ovechkin really was a girl. The kid's about 5 and he gets this disbelieving look in his eyes and I pile on. "Why do you think she wears dresses and high heels when she's not playing hcokey?"

    Colin says, "But I saw him in a commercial where just his head is showing and, and..."

    I said, "Sure, he's an ugly girl but still a girl."

    Finally, I had to straighten the kid out and tell him that I was teasing or I would have lost sleep that night.
