Alexander Ovechkin talks the talk, then walks the walk.

Tonight Leafs fans everywhere should raise a glass to AO.
Don't be offended by his comments. Rather be thankful for them. Cuz' Mike has been sayin' it for years and the Leafs' players don't listen, and obviously they are not going to listen to us Joe Schmoe fans either. So hear it from someone that has walked that road before.
Hear it from a guy whose reputation for the better part of a decade called for a "but" to be inserted whenever he was spoken about: "Great player, HOF, but ...". He finally put the obligatory "but" to rest, but it took him 10 years. Hopefully the Leafs are quick(er) learners.
Anyways, to speak that candidly, and then go out onto the SBA rink and dominate ... da'am. Hats off to you, AO. And thanks.
