It was only a year ago when insane Canadian person Marty McSorly went on to SportsNet and said Alex Ovechkin was all hype. Let me quote him: “I do not think this is an example that the young kids need to watch.”
It brings me great joy to bring you the below video. Leafs video blogger/awesome person Steve Dangle just published the opposite take. Dangle explains why Ovechkin is one of the most underappreciated players in the NHL and is likely to be one of the greatest goal scorers of all-time. He does this all using remedial math.
Really, just watch.
This is why bloggers be gettin’ paid: for excellent, thoughtful work like this.
