    I'm sure it's something Ovechkin does to get himself in the right frame of mind menally (...mental rehearsal is often used by sports psychologists), but there's a time and a place for it.

    I hope he does do it so Canada could try to set him straight.

    When you know you are good you are better than the guy that doesnt know he is good. I heard this somewhere i think.

    I hope he doesn't, because he'd end up looking like an idiot and some of retaliating Canadians would end up looking like bloodthirsty Neanderthals.

    The bottom line is that if he hopes to play in the NHL he cannot continue this. NHL teams will not tolerate embarassment. His attitude needs MAJOR readjustment before he steps into the NHL for his own sake...

    i think it's just stupid and then people will run around making excuses for him.."oh it's his ritual! it gets him ready for the game! let him do it! blah blah blah!" obviously it pisses a lot of people off (and i'm sure someone will say that's a good thing) but it's gonna cause more problems than it's worth if he keeps it up.

    but christ...that honestly sounds like something a 5 year old would do...sorry ovechkin, you're not cool doing that...

    I agree. He needs to mature.

    Man, why you gotta crush AO's feelings like that, Levitate! You know he looks up to you!

    It may seem ridiculous, but there is a reason that teams are assigned a side of the rink to warm up on before games (think back to Quebec/Montréal brawls or Philly/Montréal brawls). The WJC officials should have a chat with Ovechkin and make it clear that he stays on his side of centre.

    Please, any Russian posters don't be mad at me, but all of the Russians I have ever met were rude by our western standards. Regardless, maybe the kid doesn't even know he's being a jackass. We north americans do have different standards than they do. Someone just needs to tell him to calm down and that his behavior is not acceptable on north american ice. If he continues to do it after that, then he gets what's coming to him. This is only a stab at an explanation. :dunno:

    I think you failed to see my point. I said they were rude by our standards. Doesn't make them terrible people. Geez. My overall point is that maybe, due to different standards, that he doesn't even realize what he's doing is wrong.

    Ok, but that doesn't change the fact that Canada is whining.

    I try to offer a logical explanation and you guys get touchy. I don't think you even understand what I am saying.

    maybe this is better...

    "AO is an obnoxious little pr$ck and should be crosschecked in the head by phaneuf." that's what you guys seems to like to talk about.

    please. there's nothing similar to that thread and this one. I didn't say Russians were horrible knuckle draggers who hate Canadians or something equally as ignorant as that. All I said was what we consider rude, they may not. What's so wrong with that?

    just leave Phaneuf in front of the net. if Ovechkin comes in to do his ritual, and pretend to score, Phaneuf can do a ritual too, and pretend to do an open ice body check on a player driving to the net. if Ovechkin comes into Canada's zone and runs into it, it's his fault.
