From Chuck Gormley with CSN Washington:
CSN: It’s been said that players don’t achieve greatness until they’ve won a championship. Do you believe that?
AO: Of course, when you win you are king of the world. But if you know my personality, I’m a winner and one day I’m going to raise the Cup. If I didn’t want to do it, I wouldn’t be here. I would stay in Russia, stay with my parents, stay in my house and have a good time there. But I’m here and I want to win the Stanley Cup. This is my dream. That’s why this team is built right now to be a champion.
CSN: Do you believe this team is closer to winning a Stanley Cup than at any time since you’ve been here?
AO: We have to create together the opportunity. We are a team picked to win the Cup.
For more Ovechkin, Dave Lozo at NHL.com has a slightly unconventional look at AO today.
Update 3:30pm ET: From Jesse Spector via Twitter, news today on AO—
Alex Ovechkin heading to Russia after the death of a close relative. Condolences to @ovi8
