I should qualify, that Ovechkin has played right wing a lot lately.  


As far as left wing goes, Bobby Hull is the best  in hockey history.  After that, I'd put Ovechkin, ahead of guys like Lindsay and Kharlamov.  



Not sure where I'd rank Kirk Maltby on that list.

He's pretty obviously the best Russian player.  He's very close to being one of the best players in NHL history, period.  He'll eventually win a Cup too, and when he does that will pretty much solidify it. 


I would say if Ovechkin retires tomorrow, he's the second greatest left winger in hockey history.

I've actually always liked Ovechkin, but I didn't know where else to put this...

Ovechkin has 475 goals in 760 games. Fedorov had 483 goals in 1,248 games. Clearly different players, but 8 goals and 488 games is amazing.




He's more of a goal scorer, so he should score more GPG.    


I think when he retires, he'll be considered by experts as the best Russian player in history.  Ahead of Fedorov, Tretiak, Fetisov, Makarov, Kharlamov, Bure and others. He's putting up big numbers in a league where that isn't done anymore consistently.  He's led his team in goals and points every year he's been in the league.    


Even if he never makes the Finals, he'll likely be regarded as the best Russian player ever.  Maybe not by people back in Russia, but by most NHL experts.

Why is he done?  Jason Kidd was a head coach when he got arrested for drunk driving.  He wasn't done.  


It's a crime and he'll be punished, but it's not like we all don't know numerous people who've gotten DWI's.  He shouldn't lose his job just because of this.
