Veteran blogger Ted L. asks on his blog...

"He is a two-time MVP player now and the greatest player in our team history. As he said, 'What a life!' Can you name me one other two-time MVP player that isn’t in the Hall of Fame?"

Well, 17 players have won the Hart Memorial Trophy at least twice, including newly-minted two-time winner Alex Ovechkin. Of the other 16, how may have done so who are not in the Hall of Fame?

One... Dominik Hasek, and he's a lock to get in.

Alex Ovechkin would appear to have more to look forward to in his hockey life.

Ovie Dangerfield?

“Well, Geno, your English [is] better than Pavel Datsyuk’s English”

“It’s too hot, actually.”

-- His reaction to winning the Hart Trophy... take that, Don Cherry

"Vegas is good. I played a couple of times in the casino [and] win $500. I have the chips in my room, in the safe. We in Vegas, so we have to live the Vegas life."

-- Offering his opinion of Las Vegas…maybe he’ll do two shows a night

“Next year, Stanley Cup will be ours.”

-- He wasn’t laughing.
