Overpaid Ovechkin?

With the recent contract many may argue that Alexander Ovechkin is being overpaid, but is he?  He will be the highest paid player in the league at the age of 23 next year, and will have 124 million coming hsi way thanks to Ted Leonsis.  Alex is currently 9th in NHL scoring and beat out Sidney Crosby for the Calder.  Does this justify his 9.5 million a year contract?  Does this deserve a 13 year deal?  Look how well Mr. Yashin did with a similar deal of this magnitude.  Injuries could also severly negate this, but in the end, if the caps win a Stanley Cup he will be worth every penny.   But this fan would rather have Sid the Kid or Jarome on his team any day of the week over Alexander the Great, even if they weren’t saving me money.
