    Ovechkin to 1,000 Goals?

    Not that argument again. There weren't too many 6'3, 230 pound players in the 50's. Different era. Howe would be a smaller player by comparison in today's NHL.

    Ovechkin to 1,000 Goals?

    Very strange way of looking at it. Ovechkin isn't asked to kill penalties. This is true. However, that won't stop me from saying Howe was a better penalty killer. Same with passing. Fact is, Ovechkin's career performance is not as well rounded as Howe's. Maybe he could have been if the coaches asked him to. But we haven't seen it.

    We need at least one Russian on the team. The Red Wings haven't won a Cup without a Russian player since 1955.

    Ovechkin to 1,000 Goals?

    Ovechkin has 4x top 10 assist finishes. None since 2011. That's what makes this season's assist totals so unique. The thing is, Gordie did that 22 consecutive seasons. He was a much more rounded offensive player. Not just a goal scorer. Also, Ovechkin doesn't kill penalties. Howe was a great penalty killer. You can argue Ovechkin was a better goal scorer. There is a strong argument to be made. He's a decent passer and a great hitter. So he does other things. Just not as much as the player you're comparing him to. Gordie Howe is the most complete hockey player of all time. That's the bottom line like someone else says.

    Ovechkin to 1,000 Goals?

    They're not, unless you're only discussing goal scoring. Gordie finished top 10 in assists every season from 1948 to 1969. Think about that. When Ovechkin finishes top 10 in assists, it's news. Howe did it 22 consecutive seasons while also scoring 800 goals in his career. Also, he was a great two-way player. Strong penalty-killer. Not something that's part of Ovechkin's game. Ovechkin is a goal scoring specialist. Howe was a complete player who scored more than anyone in his era, assisted more than anyone, and was a two-way player. There's more differences than similarities when viewing their careers and skillset. Just similar goal scoring longevity.

    Ovechkin to 1,000 Goals?

    You're probably right. Although, when Gretzky scored his 802nd goal, I bet everyone thought he'd reach 1,000 handily. He didn't even reach 900. Of course, Wayne had injuries in the early 90's. Ovie is healthier than a young ox.

    I thought all these players were vaccinated? How could this happen?

    Now Barbershop scores. More shame. This guy makes Oleg Kvasha look like Sergei Fedorov.

    Three of these guys have no business playing in the NHL. Leddy may as well change his name to Orr playing next to these scrubs.

    Nobody covering the point. Goalie doesn't have it tonight.

    Playing much better in this period. Too bad the refs aren't giving us any powerplays.

    Bigger than trading a 1st for Quincey? That 1st turning into Vasilevskiy.

    Would Holland take Dekeyser for a 1st or 2nd?

    Letting some Foster drinking Aussie bloke score two goals on you. Shameful.
