Kukla's Korner Hockey


from the Toronto Sun,
Already the frontrunner for the Calder Trophy as the NHL's top rookie, Ovechkin's name is being mentioned for the Hart as the league's MVP. Some observers in Turin were even calling him the world's best player. While the kid has his entire career to prove his fans right, the Caps lowly record could negatively effect his hunt for the Hart. "He's a candidate but our standing doesn't help his cause," Hanlon said. "I can say this though. I haven't seen many guys more enthusiastic for the game." Ovechkin's love of hockey has spread throughout the Capitals dressing room. In fact, it could lead some free agents to lean toward Washington this summer, lured by the prospect of playing with such a skilled player.
