USA Today Scribe Seriously High on Ovie

USA Today’s hockey guy Kevin Allen, who also serves as president of the Professional Hockey Writers Association,¬†late yesterday blogged that the Capitals were “the NHL’s most intriguing team” in his list of 16 teams to watch in 2008-09. Then he offered up this bit of Capital Grille tenderloin:

“He¬†eventually will be to the Washington Capitals what Gordie Howe was to the Red Wings.”

    “16 teams to watch”!?! Why not just list them all?

  2. JMT: Yeah, it might have saved Allen some time to simply list “14 Teams Not Worth Your Time”, eh? 🙂 Though I really do like his assessment of Ovie.

  3. Steve says:

    Does that mean Ovie’s eventually going to end up playing for the Hartford Whalers at the end of his career?

  4. Jordan says:

    I think this was just his way of telling us which teams he thinks are gonna make the playoffs.

  5. @Jordon: Ha! Only if, by then, AO Jr. is tearing up the league and Ovie wants to play a few games with his son. 🙂

  6. The Mule says:

    Wow. That is some hyperbole right there! Well if Ovie can lead the Caps to FOUR Stanley Cups, more power to him.

    Let’s make it five Cups for DC’s Heroes of the Ice, “that way we’ll have ONE FOR THE THUMB”. *choke* Stupid Pittsburgh-ers…
