Ovechkin "The Premier Asset In The Game Today"

At least so says's Scott Cullen (and Mike Green and Nick Backstrom ain't bad either).

Dear TSN,

IMO, this article misses half of what makes Ovie that premier asset. Part of what makes him the unstoppable force that he is is that he's Ovie, and I don't know how else to put it. His passion and what I can only describe as schoolboy glee on the ice brings out the best in everybody he interacts with. It's not just that he's good (although good doesn't describe it), he makes everyone he plays with better just by being there.

andi -
Those don't have any fantasy value. The article/author are focused on fantasy hockey (that's Cullen's job there). It doesn't surprise me that the intangibles aren't mentioned.

Ah. Fantasy. That explains. Thanks for the clarification.
