Who Is This Guy?


That would be 22 year-old Alexander Ovechkin, in whom the National Hockey League hopes it has found its next superstar.

Ovechkin has drawn comparisons to all-time great Mario Lemieux, and may already be the best player in the NHL. Last night, he broke the all-time record for goals in a season by a left wing with 65. This is especially impressive considering that the NHL is currently dominated by defense and outstanding goalies (I don’t actually know anything about this; it’s just what Barry Melrose said this morning on ESPN).

Furthermore, it seems that—oh, what? You don’t actually care about hockey?

Ya, me neither.

Alex is great, but the true star is Crosby; he has been hurt a lot, but I can see him winning a number of MVPs.

Justin,

Glad to be of assistance. It hadn't occurred to me that you now lived in a hockey-crazed area. That must be strange.

Eddie,

Glad that you're doing better.

Ya, I know there are debates all over the place about who is better. The NHL has a long way to go before it's actually relevant, but it helps that its two best players are younger than I am.
