The Good News Keeps Coming (At Least On The Ovechkin Front)

Alex Ovechkin's great week continued today with news that a judge has dismissed the lawsuit brought by Moscow Dynamo that would have ostensibly forced the phenom to be returned to the Russian League team by enforcing an arbitrator's ruling that Dynamo still owned his rights. Hopefully this news will break him out of the horrendous slump he's been in lately.

AO's positive press keeps rolling along as well, with an online chat at (transcript here) and articles in major Canadian media outlets entitled "Ovechkin Pulling Away In Rookie Race" and "Ovechkin, Crosby Story A Tale Of Two Cities" (subscription required, but the text is reprinted here. Shhh.).

That "Tale of Two Cities" link in the G&M requires more than just registration. They want you to sign up for some 14-day trial period something or rather, too.

Eh. Don't bother. I'll summarize:

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, and Alexander Ovechkin kicked Sidney Crosby's ass up and down the Calder race.
