Ovechkin is such a great player

Postby SportsFan on Tue Dec 26, 2006 8:53 am

The rematch against Buffalo tonight after the hit he threw on Briere and getting jumped by Paul Gaustad.

"If it will be rough, I love play rough," he said. "I'm ready to fight if somebody want to fight me. I'm not afraid. I love make hits if somebody hit me. It's hockey. It's my game."


What a great player and great quote.

Topping of this 'rematch': Ovie's 'hand to the ear' to mock the Buffalo crowd, after he scored. Problem was, the Caps were already down by 6.

Briere got his revenge by spearing Ovechkin in the groin.

It's funny how Ovechkin never gets any press for being a diver. This is the second time this season I've seen him take a blatant dive.

I'm confused. Are you saying Ovechkin took a dive after Briere tried to shish kabob his junk? :shock: That was a wicked spear and that is every bit as bad as AO's hit on Briere was, if not worse. Washington needs to send that tape in and make sure the league sees it. Briere should be looking at a pretty severe suspension. Intentional stick fouls like that have no place in the game.

Please. That was a run of the mill spear. What made it look severe is Ovechkin acting as if he wasn't wearing a cup (take note of his delayed reaction). Taking a slight jab to the cup simply does not warrant acting like an ass.

IMHO, there is no such thing as a run of the mill spear. Slashes and cross-checks can come about as a result of someone's stick getting out of control some times, but almost every time a player gets speared it's on purpose.

That was a dirty play on Briere's part. No one should respond to one cheapshot with another one. And for those who call Ovechkin a diver from that play.....watch Briere in almost every other game. He's a diver.
Ovie tried to fight him later on in the game and Briere chickened out. If he wanted revenge for Ovie's hit on him, he should face him like a man, not spear him in the groin.
