I love AO for the most part, but that was pretty classless...

with that said... it made me laugh... I'm a horrible human being... I know.

Awesome. I'm pretty sure that kid is gonna get a lot of chicks at school. "Hey baby I got sprayed on Alex Ovechkin, wanna hang out?"

I'm finding it awfully hard to care. It's tiny ice shavings, not a BC two hander across the kids face for crying out loud.

When did it become classless to perform your pregame ritual, the same as you do every night? Hockey players are superstitious, everyone knows this.

Think about it... the poor kid got snowed by one of the greatest nhl players.... and he has to wipe it off...IDK why some people are making a big deal out of this it is not like he got COMPLETELY snowed on or anything he got a little on his legs OH NO!!!! lol

From the Chris Pronger's Handy Book of Hockey Physics:

Snow and ice are really just frozen water. When ice and snow melt, they turn into water. The body is 98% water. When you sweat, you lose water. The kid was probably hot in that outfit, and was probably sweating. Ovi was just returning what the kid had lost. It's physics.

I think what we need to be talking about MORE is why there is weird music and children waving hockey flags in the entry of the Montreal players. That is just creepy. It's like a weird ritual to them. Are they gonna bleed the kids from the neck after and sacrifice them to the hockey gods??

Good on Ovie for breaking down that awkward vibe a little.

Meh no biggie from me, probably made the kid's year. Not a smart move publicity wise though by Ovechkin.

Although I do laugh at the double standard on this forum, if this was you know who this would be 10 pages already about how he is the devil. Yet Ovechkin is just funny, even when he almost ends careers.

For that hypothetical episode, there would definitely be a few staunch haters but I'm sure they'd be doused by a majority of rational LGWers.

Kind of funny to see, but it looks like it wasn't really a big deal. I mean if he does that same thing all the time, hard to call him classless because of it. Not his fault the Canadiens stuck a little kid next to their bench.

Um, I'm not making any judgments on whether Ovechkin is a jackass here or not, but the "pregame routine" thing is the stupidest excuse ever. If it was his pregame routine to shoot a whole bunch of pucks as hard as he can at the wall at that spot, is that an excuse if he hits the kid?

Whether or not Ovechkin is a dick for this, I'll leave up to the kid, but just because you "always do something" doesn't mean you get to go ahead and automatically have the right to do it whether or not someone else is in the way. That's just stupid.

I'd like to hope so, but remembering the whole "spitting" on hand incident I'd beg to disagree.

probably the most interesting thing that ever happens to that kid in his entire life.


I agree completely.

That kid not only got to go out on the ice, hold the team flag, but got attention from one of the top stars in the game.

As to if "someone else" (afraid of saying the C word or something?) had done it... I'd feel the same, though I'm sure the media would have a field day even more so than this that would piss me off.

I don't see where this would be a problem. His pregame routine is nothing like shooting a bunch of pucks at the wall. It's skating to the bench, stopping, then going into the bench. There just so happened to be a kid there this time. This is such a non-story. If anyone else in the league did this, it'd be exactly the same.

And it might have been the only Canadiens game this season that didn't have a 30-40 minute pre-game ceremony involving Jean Beliveau.

I don't see the big deal, it seemed to me that the kid didn't even notice...this is some petty s***, and if this ground anyone's gears they need to find something of importance to care about.

I think it is a pretty dick move (the pregame ritual is crap considering he could have stopped right next to the kid without snowing him) but it was funny nonetheless.

I only wish it was Crosby so the hate could rain down on him from these forums for having no regard to the people on the ice.

I agree it's really not a story, but if it were something story-worthy, the "pregame ritual" thing wouldn't apply, so it shouldn't here, either. If snowing a kid is a jerk thing to do, then it's not excusable via pregame ritual; and if it isn't, then it doesn't matter.
