T-Shirt Prognosis: Alexander Ovechkin 2007-08 Hart Trophy Winner


The t-shirt has spoken.

The NHL's official online store briefly featured a blue Alexander Ovechkin T-shirt with the phrase "2007-08 Hart Trophy winner" displayed along the bottom.  The NHL claims it don't mean a thang.

"In an effort to offer our fans the merchandise they want in a timely manner following an event such as the NHL awards, our licensees prepare product for all possible outcomes," spokesman Frank Brown said in a statement. "In this situation, the link for one of the possible products became live early through an error by our e-commerce provider. We regret the error and have since taken steps to amend."

With 65 goals and 47 assists in 82 games, I knew Ovechkin was going to win before this gaffe.
