Lovin'lovin' Ovie

Reading my "The Hockey News" magazine today I have found this article interesting. So I decided to reprint it here.

"As a passionate hockey fan, I find too much being made of Alex Ovechkin and his goal-scoring celebrations by certain commentators and reporters.
The commentators have to see that Ovechkin is bringing back something lacking in the players these days - fun.
Some players look like they are only playing the game as a job and aren't enjoying it. With these celebrations Ovechkin shows that he truly has fun while playing and that there's nothing else he would rather be doing.
Hopefully, Ovechkin will remind other players to have fun, remember why they started playing in the first place and that they have a job millions of people would give anything to have.
Here's to Ovechkin bringing back fun to the NHL."

  1. Personally I would agree with this article. In my oppinion it's not about celebrations. It's too much show in general. Advertizing, PR, clips, name it...
