Alexander Ovechkin has 21 assists this year to be tied for 3rd in the leaugue in this stat and has 10 goals for 14th in the leaugue and less than half as much as Stamkos, the leader in that stat. Why is that?

I think it's because OV is starting to figure out it's a team sport and not the OV show.

I think it has a lot to do with Semin, actually. He is almost as hot as Stamkos was, maybe hotter when you consider he's had three hattricks this season already! But on the team dynamic, when one guy is dictating offence and is the hotter of the two, then yeah, he'll get the pass for the shot more often than not.

When Semin goes cold in, oh, January - Ovechkin will pick right up and he will once again become top dog sniper. Until then, I have to respect the fact that Ovie is ok with less points and goals, and getting wins.

Because his passes(or missed shots) have lead to more goals than his shots have gone into the net.

Kidding aside, I think as teams play against him more and more, he needs to change his game to stay as productive. Much like Crosby was an assist driven scorer in his first 3 years, he has now become a more dangerous goal scorer.

Semin actually playing to his potential doesn't hurt Ovechkin's assists total either.
