Watch Alex Ovechkin dance and rap in Russian

Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin is pretty good at his day job, to state the obvious. So here is where I'll suggest he sticks to it instead of getting into the music industry.

But if you want to play in the alternate universe and you wonder what it would be like if Ovie were a rapper and hip-hop dancer, well this is your lucky day. Unless you speak Russian you won't understand this song, but it doesn't matter, everybody can enjoy Ovechkin dancing -- and rapping to boot.

It's good to see that Ovechkin's dancing repertoire has grown so much since his Eastern Motors commercial a few years back. The singing/rapping ability is a bit better too.

Thanks to Fedor Fedin at the blog Russian Machine Never Breaks, here's a translation of Ovechkin's part of the song called Champion.

Alumni of Dynamo
8 on the back.
In the All-Star game all attention is on me.

On the NatTeam since 17
Scored 100 points in a season
Gold medal in Canada in ’08

Among the ten best players of the decade,
Stick in my hands, Rap in my headphones,
Saying hello from Washington,
Together with Sanya Belyi,
For every champion

[And then a bizarre sound that sounds like the English words "Look out!"]

Now my question is which player had a better dance and rap in a video recently: Ovechkin in Russian or former NHL tough guy Georges Laraque in this French Chris Brown rip off? (By the way, if you ever doubted how big the Canadiens are in Quebec, that should end your doubt.)

Now I'll wait for Ovechkin to celebrate a goal with his dance from this video, minus the blurred out finger part, of course.

Too bad he didn't spend time practicing shooting and passing.
Spoken like a true Pens fan... He's actually been playing incredible as of late, although, I wouldn't expect you to know that since I imagine you don't follow hockey very closely at all... Just one of those "fans" who watches the occasional Penguins game and then piles on the bandwagon once they make a run in the playoffs.

Now we know why he's having an off year.  He obviously invested a lot of time practicing his dance moves and rapping skills.  Too bad he didn't spend time practicing shooting and passing.

This takes me back to the late '90's when Puff, BIG, and I were doing Mo' Money Mo' Problems.  There is no doubt in my mind that Malkin is the best Russian player in the world rigth now.  He has two amazing goals today against Tampa.
