Default Ovechkin vs. Crosby

I know we have a NHL discussion thread, but i just had to post this. This is the Wade vs. Lebron debate of the NHL. They are the two best young stars in the NHL and are in the top five in points. If you had to pick one of these guys to start a team with, who would you take?

I took Ovechkin just because he is funner to watch. And because i'm russian

I would take the five dollars it takes to purchase an NHL team and buy a snowcone instead.

Is Malkin on the same line as Crosby? Because if so he will never surpass him.

No, but they play together at times.

I made that statement half-jokingly. It'll be pretty hard for ANYONE to surpass Sid, but Malkin does have the ability to be an AWESOME player.

Ovechkin is already very good, but I acctually believe that he can be even better. His passing and D still need work. And he should be better at both.

I just said that because if they were on the same line Crosby would always make him look better than he actually is.

Well Malkin is VERY good on his own.

When he and Ovechkin were being drafted, a lot of scouts called them "1a" and "1b".

According to various reports, Ovechkin was a better scorer, but Malkin had a better all-around game.

So far, that has been fairly accurate, though Malkin's all-around game still has room for improvement.

I am not sure how you can not pick Sidney Crosby . . . Ovechkin is great and all, but Crosby is freakin' amazing.

His passing ability makes his linemates better, so he actually improves the teams play even more.

Alexander The Great and I say this has an extremely biased Caps fan. He's the best all-around player in the league. The only reason people will say Crosby is because of the media hype.

Points are overrated.

So are wins.

And Plus/minus.

It's all about flashy goals, thats what wins championships.

I'm a big fan of AO, but he's not the best all-around player in the league.

He might be the best goal-scorer, but his passing and D need work.

It's very close, if Crosby had a more physical game he'd be alot better than Ovechkin but since he doesn't, it's Crosby by quite abit.
