Alex Ovechkin just can't make up his mind

Kyle Terada-US PRESSWIRE

Alex Ovechkin has every single opinion.

First, Alex Ovechkin said that he might stay in the KHL after the lockout. He wanted to be in Washington, but if the lockout proved unfavorable, staying in Russia could become an option.

"If they need us, how I say, if they're gonna cut percentage of the contract and years, I don't think lots of guys who signed American deals are gonna come back and play here. It's not reasonable to be here. You have to think of the future, you have to think of your family."

Then, he repeated it, this time to the Russian media.

I think yes. If my contract will be cut down greatly, it would be possible to annul it through the court.

Then, just the other day, Ovi completely changed his tune.

Certainly. I am very comfortable in Moscow, Russia in general, but my soul is across the ocean, in the NHL, with Washington Capitals, with whom I still hope to win the Stanley Cup.

Alas, every week, even every day and hour, the hope that the NHL lockout will be solved, is decreasing.

Now, well ... another plot twist. Ovi says that interview is a lie. He never said his soul is with the Caps and that he wants to return to the NHL. Never happened. Via the Alex Ovetjkin blog, which translated a report from Russia's Luzhniki SE:

I did not give this interview. Press Attaché of the club called the newspaper and tried to investigate how it could happen. As for my "desire" to return, I have already said it three hundred times on this subject. Now I am going to tell you about it three hundred and first time. So far there is no progress in the negotiations across the ocean and I stay with Dynamo. In recent days, however, I haven't made any calls to America. There were negotiations yesterday and today. We'll see what will come out of it.

He'll get this down sooner or later.
