    I grew up (and still are) a big Essendon Bombers fan in the AFL (Australian Rules Football).
    We had a player who I consider to be possible the greatest player of all time. He played when I was between 10-27ish. So my hero.
    When he stopped playing there was a massive hole in the team for me. Just watching him play was my favourite thing about watching footy. Win or lose, I got to watch Hirdy play.

    I have the feeling that will happen again for me when this great man finishes up.

    Enjoy every moment.

    Agreed. It will be a very sad day when Ovie finally hangs up his skates.

    I am enjoying every moment right now as it won't last forever.

    He now has the record for most seasons between his 1st and last 50 goal year (first was 2006).

    He makes that play look so easy. It is so hard. Puck coming across the body. That's the same play Carlson missed on from Vrana last game.

    We saw he started unloading his full shot again in the previous game after a few games of passing away chances. I think he likely was playing through a minor injury. What a f***ing menace he is. 50 is a big number because it is used as a measure stick across generations.

    That goal is as Ovechkin as they come. He scores and goal and destroys a defenseman just by being strong on his skates. He blows the guys straight off his skates and it doesn't even slow his celly down. What a freaking beast.

    BTW....On the Tampa broadcast they showed Ov's first career shift where he checked a guy thru the glass,

    Not that it means much, but that was Coburn who got trucked. A grizzly old vet at 225 pounds, he is no scrawny greenhorn spring chicken.

    “Many more years to go”

    The strongest indicator yet of his future.

    He’s my favorite athlete of all time and it’s gonna be basically impossible for someone to knock him down to second place in my heart. I can’t even imagine what better than Ovechkin for me would look like.

    He's my favourite athlete ever, as well.

    He really is unique and there will never be another player like Ovie ever again.

    You're assuming this is his last 50 goal year. I don't buy that.

    I need some help with finding certain videos. All I want is Ov powerplay goals, but not "the most obvious" ones. I'm looking for those PPG's, when the pass to #8 is off the mark or the puck is bouncing/rolling and yet still beats the goalie. Hope you can provide a little help
