from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,
Life is all about expectations and in the case of Alexander Ovechkin, he’s not meeting them and he’s certainly not exceeding them.
Whatever it is we thought Ovechkin would become, whatever it is he teased us with, it hasn’t happened away from the commercial world. It hasn’t happened where it’s mattered most, on the ice, in games, where he gets the opportunity to strut his stuff.
This was supposed to be a 1 and 1a gathering of stars in the National Hockey League. That’s been the sell. Turn on one commercial and you see Sidney Crosby. Turn on the other, and there’s Ovechkin. Only one problem in Ovechkin’s situation. The guy doing adds from Mr. Big isn’t playing like Mr. Big.
