Alex the Great

There's still a debate in some corners of the universe over which current NHL player is the greatest- Alex Ovechkin or Sidney Crosby (I know, silly, but some people cannot let go, right?). But take a look at this highlight and there is no question that, right now, "Alex the Great" tops the list.

And Barry Melrose is correct in his analysis- the play is made (and made more phenomenal) by Ovechkin's effort to beat the defenseman off the boards to control the puck. Take it from a guy who plays hockey- ridiculous skating skill folks.
