Mailbag: Laine could follow Ovechkin as League's top goal-scorer

If Connor McDavid is the next Sidney Crosby, who are your candidates for the next pure goal scorer like Alex Ovechkin? -- @briantodd34

Winnipeg Jets forward Patrik Laine is the player who immediately comes to mind. Laine uses his powerful right-handed shot to hammer one-timers from the left circle, just like Ovechkin. He thinks like a goal-scorer rather than a playmaker, like Ovechkin. He absolutely loves to score goals, like Ovechkin. He can make a power move off the rush to get himself a scoring chance, just like Ovechkin. He can play stationary and beat a goalie with his quick release, just like Ovechkin. It's no surprise that Ovechkin was Laine's favorite player in the NHL before he arrived in Winnipeg.
