Jan. 11, 2011: Alex Ovechkin's scoring may be down, but his team is playing well lately. Wes Goldstein sits down with the NHL superstar to talk about the Winter Classic and to answer viewer questions.
"We searched the world over... He is the most unique, and he is, in our minds, the best player in this league right now, maybe one of the best ever. And then you add the great character, the respect that he has for everyone in the organization. I'm glad he's not pulling back. He'll learn to pick his spots a little bit, but I'm glad in a lot of ways that he's defiant in saying this is the way I play, and who is anybody to tell me that I shouldn't be playing this way? So I'm glad he's defiant and wants to keep playing the way he's going to play. And he doesn't want to hurt anybody, but every once in a while, with all the hits that he delivers, you know, some will go off-track.
~Caps GM George McPhee
"He's like the shark in Jaws, circling in the water waiting for blood. They should play that music from the movie – da-duh, da-duh, da-duh - when he's out on a shift. He doesn't just go after loose pucks, he hunts them down."
~John Davidson, President of Hockey Operations for the St. Louis Blues.
Keep the faith, TJ, and keep up the good work.
