In the minds of Capitals fans, there is no better player in the world than their own Alex Ovechkin. Other outside of the district often beg to differ, but with a highlight reel like Ovie’s, it’s hard to deny him the crown. Obviously the playoffs flameout puts a damper on the discussion, but if you just watch the #1 and #2 goals on this list you’ll become a believer.
He’s a man who plays with reckless abandon and loves to score goals no matter what. His creativity with the puck is astounding and something Caps fans hope to have playing at the Verizon Center for years to come.
