Most hockey observers in the states come to a consensus that the leader of the "Washington" and its captain Alexander Ovechkin will not get in this year's title of most valuable player of the season. The main reason for this may serve as second in the season disqualification obtained as a result of injury to the defender of "Chicago" Brian Campbell. Sportsnet columnist Mike Brophy thinks the nhl Ovechkin will exclude from the list of voting as the League of long closed eyes on his rough play. Here is what the analyst wrote in his blog: – Ovechkin considers itself one of the toughest forwards in the nhl and probably proud of it. It is worth noting that Aleksandrov "the Great" strikes his opponents very selectively.
He knows that he is unlikely to receive a response from Jaromir Jagr, as it was during a match with the Czech Republic at the Olympics, from the small of Brian Campbell or the Gleason of the Carolina ". Ovechkin has already stopped the devil permitted in last year playoffs, when issued 'knee in the knee by Sergei Gonchar. More frequently we hear from players is that Alex was punished, or ever will come and "his day". In the end, Ovechkin personally handed the Hart Trophy in the hands of Sid Crosby, Henrik Sedin, or even Ryan Miller. One can only hope that he would not commit such acts. Yesterday the head of the disciplinary committee of the nhl, Colin Campbell said that the conversation led with Ovechkin concerning his conduct on-site and expressed the hope that it will not happen again.
