    I know the guy as skill but the attitude omg he as a worse attitude than jagr . The will never be a great athlete like gretzky , lemieux, lafleur , forsberg because he dont have a thing call modesty . Really it was funny to see him in wjc with is pro visor and the way he move when he score a goal . It was rediculous i think its the kind of player that break the chemistry of the team . This guy when he will became multi millionaire will play with no effort like jagr :madfire:

    I don't think we've seen or heard enough of him to make a rash judgement. He seems to be very passionate about hockey, which I take as a good omen. Nothing he has done has turned me off being excited about watched him in the NHL, I think he'll be amazing.

    Is his attitude really that bad or is it people who think "hmm, he is a talented euro, he must be soft and have a bad work ethic"?

    He's turning down $4.5mil tax free to make $900,000 away from his family in a country that speaks a different language. That shows character...

    If anything that shows the type of guy I want on my team, not some guy who is strolling around looking for the highest bidder.

    Well, put your bias aside for a moment. I think people are blowing the WJC WAY out of proportion, I saw nothing there that turned me off to his attitude. In fact, as much as people want to get on him for crying after a loss, I loved the passion and desire to win that it showed. I don't think his attitude is anyhting like Jagr's.

    People, explain to me why Jagr has such a bad attitude and why people think he is a horrible person in the lockerroom. I want to hear some good proof with sources and links.

    Well he's 19, so he's going to mature in years to come. When you are 19, and playing in a hostile building, like in Grand Forks, it feels sweet to earn a victory. Ovechkin overdid his celebrations, but he's still young, and still has lots to learn. I wouldn't worry about little things like that hindering the rest of his career.

    If people think that Ovechkin is arrogant/cocky when he speaks to the media, I think it simply is a case of mis-communication. While he speaks English, he is not very fluent, and things come out direct and brash. I remember prior to the Canada-Russia final in January, people were criticizing him for making arrogant remarks, after hearing an interview on TSN. I wouldn't hold any comments he makes in English against him, until he lives in DC for a few years, and has a firm grasp of the language.

    Malkin was worse and no one questions his "character".

    Ovechkin is the only prospect with an argument on Canadian savior Sidney Crosby so he naturally takes inordinate amounts of flak.

    Just my .02.

    This thread, or better, this Jagr comparison as a negative factor is absolutely hilarious.

    Much of the same was said about Kovalchuk at the WJCs. "Too selfish, too cocky, too arrogant..."

    The drive and talent is what sets these kids apart. I think AO will mature (just like Ilya has). Their core personality will mellow as they mature, but their drive will stay the same and will be channeled into the team.

    Hell, I would take him on my team!

Look its normal for a player that he wanna play in the best league . And i said that hes the next jagr but maybe worse because jagr was not arrogant in the start of his career .

    Jagr won multiple awards and Stanley Cups. I would be thrilled if AO had a similar career to Jagr's :bow:

    I think AO's language is better than yours.

    Not sure how old you are, or how long you've been following hockey, but with the exception of a guy named Mario, and a non-fubar'd Lindros, Jagr dominated the league like no one else for the last 15 (noted, with certain off-periods) years. Sure, I'd rather have Kelly freakin Buchberger on my team.

    Oh, and are arrogant players a bad thing? Conditioned mindless drones with no entertainment value are why, to most people, NBA>NHL.

    Ovechkin is one of my favorite prospects. Russians sometimes get bashed for having no heart, but he is the exact opposite. Sometimes shown as cockyness, he has a passion for the game and the skills to go with it.

    Exactly, I honestly dont mind if a player is arrogant as long as they can back it up. I always get reved up when Kovalchuk scores a goal because most of the times hes going nuts when he does.
