    Nothing really surprising here from the Great 8.

    He's still in his physical prime as an athlete, this shouldn't be surprising to anyone.

    have Kuznetsov Carlson Oshie and Backstrom as threats on the powerplay

    not that hard. Teams can choose to play 4 on 3 if they fear Ovi

    33 is old when it comes to goal scorers. There's only only been four players that have scored 50+ at age 32+, Hull sr, Esposito, Bucyk, and Jagr. Jagr being the only one to of done it in nearly 45 years.

    Is he though? Orpik was just on Spittin Chiclets and said Ovi still eats like a pig and drinks 3-4 cokes a game on the bench.

    Someone should cover him on the left faceoff dot during the powerplay. Lol

    Probably an exaggeration. I see Ovi spraying the water bottle, and it's water coming out of it. If he's taking his training seriously, he's still good.
