    Since this kid is supposed to be one of the greatest talents to come along in decades, I want to get maximum enjoyment out of his presence in the NHL. Thus, I would hate to see him on a team that:

    1. Consistently fails to develop its prospects
    2. Plays trap (or only plays trap for now out of necessity)
    3. Does not play responsible hockey

    My top choices:
    Thrashers (Ovechkin, Heatley, Kovalchuk - need I say more?)
    Blue Jackets
    Bolts

    My "I hope this doesn't happen" choices:
    Capitals
    Flames
    Sabres

    It seems like he's going to end up with the Penguins unless the Panthers wins the lottery again ;o)
     
  3. I want him to play for Montreal.

    Edmonton.
    We've been lacking a bonafide top center since Weight left.

    Smyth - Ovechkin - Hemsky

    nice :handclap:

    Montreal or Ottawa.

    Ottawa: They would have 4 #1 RW
    Montreal: Well, they are my favorite team and I hope that a player like Ovechkin or Crosby can put the Habs back on top!

    The Pittsburgh Penguins obviously. I don't think there is a team more in need of a potential offensive superstar than the Penguins right now.

    I'd love to see him as an Oiler as well, it would eb the second coming of Wayne at Skyreach. And there is no team i enjoy watching more in the playoffs than the Oil, he can give them that extra spark to finally beat Dallas in the opening round

    the Canucks ofcourse.... Ovechkin with Naslund or Bertuzzi!! especially in the offensive system we play!

    of course that ain't happening... so to any eastern team... that way I get to enjoy him tearing it up against the competition, rather than see him tear it up against us a half dozen times a year!

    Personally, with no bias, I'd like to see him play for:

    Atlanta
    Nashville
    Calgary
    Minnesota

    (in no particular order)

    The moon, since he wont ever be playing for my team.

    Seriously though, of all the teams likely to get him, I like the idea of seeing him on a line with Kastytsin, so Montreal.

    Obviously I'd want him in Montreal.

    But other than that, wouldn't mind seeing him in Nashville, Pittsburgh, Phoenix. Bring some fans into the seats.

    If not Montreal, then the Canes or the Penguins...

    wow! Fleury + Ovechkin... talk about players you want to build your team around

    One would hope that whatever team drafts him knows what kind of game he plays, and allows him to play that game. I can't imagine a single team in the NHL that wouldn't give him the opportunity to do what he does best. It's pretty silly to pick teams that you don't want him to play for unless that team is a rival of your team. None of Washington, Calgary, or Buffalo will turn Ovechkin into a 4th line checker.

    Pittsburgh...

    We need Ovechkin about as much as we need a new arena.

    Nashville or Pittsburgh.

    I kinda feel Atlanta and Florida have already had their go.

    We can't just think of ourselves here, or I would want him to go to the Avs, but the Avs won't miss the playoffs anyway and even if they did they are horrible with their prospects so that would not be a good place for Ovechkin. I'd like to see him on a defensively responsible team but not a trapping team. There would have to be a big team-first atmosphere on the team he goes to. A hard-working team......hmmmmmm. Anybody know of a team like that who will miss the playoffs? Maybe a young expansion team? Any suggestions?

    I just hope he gets picked by a team that I'm gonna see more than once a year.

    I really hope that Pittsburgh gets him. I've never been a big fan of the Pens, but they really need someone that will draw fans and keep the team where it is.

    I'd like to see him play on a young team with 2 good playmaking centers, a good coach and a veteran winger to help him get acclimated to the NHL. I'd say:
    Atlanta
    Tampa
    Ottawa(Ovechkin-Spezza-Havlat)<-Best young line in the universe
    Colorado-biased homer pick
