If you haven't, Sidney, move over...

...the REAL "Next One" has made the biggest statement of his young career sus far.

Alexander Ovechkin helped send Team Canada back to North America as Team Russia beat the defending Olympic Champions 2-0. This is a continuation of a bizzare year in hockey as Canada will not be playing in the semifinals for the first time since NHL players started to take part in the Olympics in 1998.

And my final thought on this is -- what affect will thsi have on the NHL season when it resumes? Will we see more aggressiv eplay from stars with a chip on their shoulder? Or will we see bellyaching and sluggishness from players whose morale was hurt in this loss?
