His speechless postgame interview screams one thing to me. 'How could the Habs beat us?'

With that attitude, the question answers itself. I don't have anything else to say, I'm just curious if anyone else noticed it, and if they agree or disagree about the message being sent unintentionally by Ovi.

Well, it's the same way he acted in the Olympics after he lost. You can tell he hates losing, but hey...he should have done something about it.

Doesn't bother me. He lost and that's what it feels like to be a loser.

Seems like an appropriate reaction to me. He is obviously devastated.

I think any perceived arrogance comes from the language barrier.

Ovi was Gretzky compared to Semin and Green. I mean seriously-- they did nothing (positive) tonight.

Found it on Youtube from another camera's point of view but it's the same interview.

Well I don't know about that. Whenever fans, especially Wings fans watch the passive-aggressiveness of C-Word, Mr. "He got my stick but didn't do anything out of the ordinary" after a loss we judge him as arrogant.

Hmm I don't know. As a wings fan yes his comments annoyed me, but i never thought it was arrogance. Just dissapointment. I don't think he could have said anything to please us wings fans to be honest. I would only truly be happy with "Zetterberg owned me on that one, boy that guys some player eh?"

He always does that though. If a reporter asks him how tough it was to beat so and so goaltender, he'll credit the defensemen for clearing the crease instead. If they ask him about the defensemen he'll credit the goaltender and the backchecking forwards. And such and such. Any run of the mill textbook answer would've been fine.

I feel bad for the guy when they win no matter what this team does everything falls on his shoulders its gotta be tough on him, this team needs some more help on D i've heard Volchenkov could test free agency and they might go after him, and also Semin,Ovechkin and Backstrom are all goals scorers you could see it first hand tonight they need a playmaker on this team to help out ovi and the other guys. A guy like Savard,Datsyuk,Thornton someone to set up.

Filppula in a Caps jersey would be quite interesting to see for his biggest fans on here if he wasn't going to get consistent 2nd line center minutes as a Red Wing.

I think we shall have to agree to disagree. I can see what you're saying, I just don't percieve him as an arrogant person but rather someone who hates losing more than anything in the world.

Ovechkin is clearly the same way but shows it differently.

It shows differently or fans perceive it differently? Because I pretty much agree that handling losing will always look ugly. Because it is and it should.

The Caps were up 3-1 in the series. The comeback was VERY unlikely. This is not arrogance, just statistics.

Both really. Ovechkin tends to shun the media or give poor interviews like this one after losses. As opposed to Crosby who always talks to the media. Fans will generally percieve Crosby negatively because of how much he's shoved down everyones throats by the NHL marketing (and I don't blame them), people seem like they are looking for Crosby to say something for them to get angry about, so every little line he says is looked at harshly.

Ovechkin on the other hand is percieved to be the much more likeable character so he usually gets away with saying nothing. Although that seems to be changing a bit after the olympics.

I don't think he was any less or more effective than Semin but Green was playing for the Habs tonight. That much was obvious. lol

i agree, and i agree with the post you quoted. there was a lot of talk about the caps' weak defense, but the habs (admittedly not an offensive juggernaut) only scored two goals in two of the last three games. the caps scored a total of three goals in those games -- not something you'd expect from a team with those kinds of goal scorers. i don't watch the caps enough to know, but you do have to wonder if the lack of a great playmaker has something to do with that. having a ton of good goal scorers is great, but when a goalie is red hot, you need someone to make that cross ice pass when the top-corners shots just aren't going in. you need someone to open it up a little bit.

It shows differently or fans perceive it differently? Because I pretty much agree that handling losing will always look ugly. Because it is and it should.


i think i agree with this, too, in regards to the crosby-ovie debate. obviously, wings fans are going to be biased if for no other reason than we've played the penguins twice in a row in the finals and they beat us last year. because we're much more rivals with them, it's easy to see the capitals in a better light: the enemy of your enemy is your friend. i do think that there are graceful ways to lose, but it much easier to be graceful in your loss when you're the underdog -- tippet's comment about the wings just finding another level the 'yotes couldn't match comes to mind. but when you're supposed to dominate a team and they absolutely stun you, that seems to be the most brutal loss in all of sports. handling THAT kind of loss is always going to be ugly.
