Alexander The Great: First Impressions

The Capitals may stink out loud this year (may?), but as long as Alexander Ovechkin is on the ice, they'll be worth watching. After one pre-training camp skate, the first reviews are in:

"He's the most talented player I've ever faced." - Olie Kolzig

"Wow!" - Brian Willsie

"As good of a player as he is, and he is very good, he is only going to get better." - Dainius Zubrus

"[H]e has the whole package -- speed, size, shot, he sees the ice well, everything." - Sergei Gonchar (who Ovechkin blew up on this hit last year)
