    Овечкин will not go to Finland

    In the first period of a companionable meeting with "молодежкой" (November, 4) Alexander Ovechkin attacking to modular Russia because of a strong bruise has left from ice in the first period. And to finish a match any more could not.
    As the general manager of our national command(team) Alexey Kasatonov has informed, for this reason Sashа in structure of the Russian combined team on the next stage of Euroround to Finland will not go.

    "At Овечкина - a hematoma of a hip," doctor Dinamo Valery Konov has told. " rest is necessary for the Guy during one week. Then it(he) can train and play. By the way, in a recent match with "Amur" Sаshа has received also crisis of bones of a nose. It is one more reason on which it(he) needs time for restoration..."

    .......So no Ovechkin in Finland. Russia just lost to Finland 3-2.

    It doesn't mean anything until he does it in the NHL. Which I doubt he will.........

    ;)

    Thanks for the update. Whoever wins this coming drafts lottery is truly going to be winning the lottery. The best young player to come along since 99 and 66.

    That's why they call it the Ovechkin Sweepstakes. And what doesn't mean anything?

    There were 8 players missing on the team, not just Ovechkin.

    Well, I guess you don't know what you mean either. Anyway, the way I figured it, Ovechkin will probably be drafted by one of these teams:

    EC-Boston Bruins
    EC-Atlanta Thrashers
    EC-New York Islanders
    EC-Buffalo Sabres
    EC-Carolina Hurricanes
    EC-New York Rangers
    EC-Montreal Canadians
    EC-Florida Panthers
    EC-Philadelphia Flyers
    EC-Pittsburg Penguins
    EC-Toronto Maple Leafs
    EC-Washington Capitals
    WC-Chicago Blackhawks
    WC-Calgary Flames
    WC-Mighty Ducks of Anaheim
    WC-Columbus Blue Jackets
    WC-Edmonton Oilers
    WC-Los Angeles Kings
    WC-Minnesota Wild
    WC-Phoenix Coyotes
    EC-Tampa Bay Lightning

    Seeing as the virtual locks for the playoffs are:

    WC-Colorado Avalanche
    WC-Detroit Red Wings
    EC-New Jersey Devils
    EC-Ottowa Senators
    WC-Dallas Stars
    WC-St. Louis Blues
    WC-Vancouver Canucks

    So that means 3 of the Western Conference teams and 6 of the Eastern Conference teams from the first list will join the second list and on of the remaining teams will get Ovechkin. Who do you think it will be?

    I'll narrow it down even further...

    EC-Florida Panthers
    EC-Pittsburg Penguins
    WC-Chicago Blackhawks
    WC-Columbus Blue Jackets
     
  9. I don't think Columbus is that bad, but if they somehow did get Ovechkin think of him and Zherdev on the same line :eek:

    I actually like the idea of Semin-Ovechkin right about now :D

    "It" was a joke Floppa. What "doesn't mean anything" is simply a statement that some people use to say that what anyone does in the minors doesn't mean that they will be able to carry it into the NHL. "It" means that some, not me because I have been banging the Ove drum for three years now along with allot of others, feel that there are always one or two young studs that are the next greatest thing who never make it in the bigs so while their minor league accomplishments are nifty, that doesn't mean that they are a lock to be superstars in the NHL.

    Although, as I said, in this case, "it" was an obvious joke (and a bad one at that) that I had written to sarcastically say that Ove might just be one of those guys who doesn't make it in the NHL. Of course, I am as certain as anyone that that wont be the case as Ove is the best looking russian kid that have seen since they were allowed to play in the NHL. Of course, I have only seen him on tape and in the JC's but he sure looks good to me.


    So, I did know what I mean after all.

    I'm seriously starting to hope that the caps just keep crashing and burning. Ovechkin sure would be nice.

    I think Ovechkin might do well on a team that is defensivley responible but not a trapping team. Know of any teams like that? I think he might do well in Atlanta....Ovechkin and Kovalchuk would kill. What kind of system does Montreal have?

    Guy Lafleur has had nothing good to say about European born players.He believes that only Canada can produce hockey talent.Well here is my response to your obviously biased comments.

    Ovechkin will go the Dallas Stars who will miss the playoffs this season. Won't that just be a hoot for all us Stars fans?
