Alex Ovechkin releases his official statement on the All-Star Game

As you all know by now, Alex Ovechkin pulled out of the All-Star Game to protest his suspension. He released a statement today, which the NHL put on its website… before realizing it wasn’t the best PR move and promptly taking it down.

Luckily HTTN captured a screenshot during the mere seconds it was up.

If you’re scratching your head wondering what this is all about, read Tim Thomas’s statement on skipping the Bruins’ trip to the White House.

    All that is missing is Ovi calling Shanaban “sillyhead”.  Well played good sir.

    Many people found it more than “slightly amusing,” so perhaps you are the moron?

    Ahhh ovie take your ball and go home u worthless peace of shit

  • Dcsportsdude

    Very good dude.  And Ovi is right on this. 

  • Dlksfj

    I read the comments first and thought I would not enjoy, but I enjoyed.

  • nutted on

    I found this insanely amusing how a russion is talking about constitutional liberties. Go on Ovi,  I would like to hear more. Also I would like to see it written in his broken english, makes it much more amusing. but Ovi is right, FUCK THE MAN!

  • Howwie

    At least Ovi is being honest, his word choice is a bit odd. other than that whatever.

  • Joe

    it not real stupido

  • Hoydie17

    Oh the irony… A person who can’t use proper English grammar or spelling calling on a website to textually represent a Russian’s “broken English” on a news posting.

    I wish this was real. It’s so damn funny. 

  • Kbragg51

    you people are retards, OVI didnt really say this. this is a joke, a spoof or whatever you want to call it mixing ovi’s suspension with Tim Thomas statement about not going to the white house. 

  • Alex

    I like how they just changed the names around from the Tim Thomas statement. There’s no way Ovi actually said this, the grammar is just too good. rofl
