Про Овечкина в Глоб энд Мэйл

Philosophically, getting Ovechkin to consider team thoughts is the same issue that the Atlanta Thrashers are facing with their brilliant young Russian forward, Ilya Kovalchuk and it's also the same issue that super prospect Evgeni Malkin's Russian Superleague team, Metallurg Magnitogorsk, faces at home as well.

The only downside to the wonderfully talented group of Russian players suddenly emerging on the international scene is this: That after a lifetime of learning they can win one-on-one confrontations, they want to play as individuals more than they do within the context of a team game.

Ковальчук действительно плохо смотрится в командной игре. И это уже не исправить. Действительно вся надежда на Овечкина. И может тренер Вашингтона действительно прав.
Статья очень хорошая. Хотя и спорная. Ну не похож Овечкин на Буре.
