ok? So why is he an ego maniac?
Just a little friendly sarcasm.
fair enough, I just didn't know how to respond, so I thought I would ask, cuz IMO he is awsome as hell and would deserve all the money and hype.
Sorry, not on the topic, but I thought those performance bonuses were limited under the new CBA?
Ovechkin = busto mcbusto
"I would like to thank George McPhee and the entire organization for their support. I will work very hard to put the team first always and make the fans happy."
God, what an arrogant *******.
God I hate him. Like being cocky is one thing but this guy takes it to a whole new level he really needs to be disciplined and start thinking about the game first
I think they are limited. I believe there's a 4-5 million ceiling for rookie contracts which includes the congregate bonuses. It's the rookie base salary that's been lowered and capped.
You should know by now that Erocaps could never say anything slightly negative about Ovechkin!
at least you hope so.....right?
so why has he played in a league with/against men the last few years?
3.9 Million for a rookie? Wow.
Max bonuses. If he achieves them, he's worth the money.
If I remember correctly the CBA makes sure those bonuses pretty damn hard to achieve the maximum on too. They I suppose tried to make sure that they did not make every top slelection get things like 'gets out of bed one morning out of ten, $1 million,' etc. etc.
You should know better than posting sarcasm here, you'll always get people that don't get it. This one wasn't as obvious though I think, and kind of wierd.
Blah, nothing he says matters. All that is important is that he has the nerve to...wear a unique visor! That proves without a shadow of a doubt that he's an egomaniac with a bad attitude! I mean, where does a guy get off colouring his visor?
sorry but what he meant is he wants to put the team 1st on his plans.. maybe he didnt express himself properly, or maybe the translator make a mistake..
the team will remain his priority.. come on guys... i tought it was because of the picture... cause for me it wasnt a no brainer it wasnt that sentence.
As a 2004 draftee who was given a contract before (what ever the cutoff was) Ovechkin's contract is a blend of the old and new CBA.
Pretty much every post in this thread is loaded with sarcasm.
Damn easterners get to watch two of the best prospects in about a decade. Very jealous.
A. Ovechkin GP:82, G:28, A:34, P:60.
"I have spoken to Dainius Zubrus and Alexander Semin," Ovechkin said through an interpreter. "They say Washington is a wonderful city, and there is a great atmosphere around the team. I know the rest is up to me."
Wow, hes basically saying Its a nice city and good fans, but i know the team sucks and im gonna be its savior
