Alex Ovechkin has never been afraid to share his opinions. During the course of the current NHL lockout we've seen him comment on the negotiations several times, even threatening to stay in the KHL after the lockout ends. This time Ovechkin took to Twitter, calling NHL owners "clowns" after the league made negative statements to the media about Donald Fehr.
In his usual broken English, Ovechkin Tweeted...
Hahaha Whata clowns!!!....Don tell it all.Bla blah ...make a deal instead of talk about Don!— Alex Ovechkin (@ovi8) November 10, 2012
Our best guess is that Ovechkin was saying - "Hahaha What clowns!!! ... Don tells us everything. Make a deal instead of talking about Don". That's just our best guess, however. You never really know with Ovechkin.
The NHL's tactic to distance the players from their leader - Fehr - was one that appears to have backfired. In this era of modern technology, players are communicating amongst themselves more than ever before. It's highly suspect to suggest that Fehr is hiding major details from the players.
This Tweet was ReTweeted roughly 2,500 times and Favorited over 500 times. It's clear a lot of fans agree with Ovechkin and believe the league and the owners are acting like clowns.

let him stay in the KHL he is a dirty player anyway. good luck getting them to share the profits idiots
@puckhim You must be a Penguin fan! Pretty boy Crybaby doesn't have 1/10 the heart that Ovi does and he plays hard NOT dirty. Thats EXACTLY how hockey is supposed to be played. Crosby is so overrated its not even funny. Ovi is more like Mario Lemieux than Syd Crybaby is. I am a Red Wing fan and I think Ovi is one of the most dynamic players in the NHL. Pittsburgh has the dirtiest players in the league and the biggest whiners. Every team has its goons but Crybaby hasn't done anything to impress me at all. Ovi has!
@puckhim A dirty player????lol
OK maybe(!!!),but hes a hell of a player....One of the best in the league....In the world for that matter!
He had a rough season,but I'll take Ovi in my team a-n-y-t-i-m-e !!!( "Puckyou" not very original btw)
