pretty good article


“My heart is not there. I got suspended, so why I have to go there,” Ovechkin said. “I don’t want to be a target. I feel I’m not deserving to be there right now.”

What a tool.

Could you imagine the backlash if Crosby said something like that?

You mean like last year when he decided to sit out after being concussed?

I do agree with him on one point. He truly doesn't deserve to be there. If he were at the game this year it would be on past achievements alone - but isn't that how a lot of guys make All-Star games in every sport?
