If you were a wealthy person who would you pay the most to see play and why? My pick has to be Alexander Ovechkin. I have a few friends that saw him play and they all told me that they haven't seen anything like him. IMO he's the most exciting player in the NHL. He has a rocket of a shot, his speed is incredeble, hits like a train and always plays with his heart on his sleeve. Because he plays for Washington we don't see much of him but I have NHL Centre Ice so I can catch his games and he's such a treat to watch. I'd pay a lot to see him.
