Alexander Ovechkin continues on his campaign this season to break Wayne Gretzky's record as he's still third all-time in goals scored in the NHL.

However, the Gr8 one was asked a question about who'd he like to share a line with if his rival Sidney Crosby was Centering him.
This is an interesting "what-if scenario" as both players are elite, and both Stanley Cup winners.
Ovechkin mentioned former Enforcer Donald Brashear, as a dream linemate for Crosby and himself.
Ovi mentioned the fact that Sidney and himself would need protection in the NHL. This isn't far-fetched given Sidney Crosby's concussion history as a result of illegal hits to the center.
Crosby has missed 114 games in his career due to concussion-related injuries. The bulk of the missed games came in 2011 and 2012, during his prime. Crosby missed 48 games in the 2010-11 season and 20 games at the start of the 2011-12 season.


Just imagine how dynamite a line would be with two goal scorer combined for over 1,000+ goals in the NHL and an enforcer who fought everyone including Bob Probert in his prime.
