Player rankings: Ovi climbing
Alex Ovechkin has surpassed all goalies except one
The Puck Prospectus metric GVT (goals versus threshold) allows us to compare players at every position to determine who the true leaders are. Ryan Miller is still atop the rankings, but Alex Ovechkin is fast approaching. Even though the star forward was suspended two games this past week, he managed to climb up the rankings thanks to the struggles of goalies like Evgeni Nabokov.
