He's an elite goal scoring power forward. Crosby is an elite playmaker.

Ovy doesn't touch Crosby's skating ability, his passing ability, his playmaking ability, or his vision. Which is why I'd take Crosby over Ovy.

I would say Crosby is the more "once in a lifetime" player than Ovechkin. Great goal scorers come and go, but players with Crosby's skill set are once in a hockey generation.

I'll agree with that.

Craigo hopes to escalate quickly but not get out of hand.

Case in point:

During his 4 assist night last night, ha made a pass to Recchi for a goal that was probably better than any goal Ovechkin has scored this year.

Thats right. I compared an assist to a goal.

Yup. If an American and a Canadian agree on something Hockey related, it's gotta be a fact. :D

I dont disagree with you that Crosby has more playmaking skills, but I still take Ovechkin because I dont like whiny babies I like players who play with a snarl and play tough and score goals.

Much better is a real stretch, you really underate Crosby's scoring ability. I'm sure if he took as many shots as Oveckin does he would be close to leading the league in goals. Instead of shooting it every time he get's the puck he likes to pass it, which usually set's up a higher percentage shot.

Crosby is tearing up the league this year, he has 14 more points than the 2nd place point getter.

It would be nice if Ovechkin had someone to pass the puck to, he has to shoot because on his line he is the only hope of scoring. In fact I give it a year until Semin demands a trade and Ovie is left as the only scoring threat on the team. But hopefully Backstrom copmes over next year and he and Ovie can dominate, but we'll still lose 6-5 or 5-4 because we have no goaltending.

Ovechkin is really struggling right now. He's been stuck with 72 points for a few games already.

Much better scorer? Ovechkin has 34 goals on 302 shots... an 11.3%. Crosby has 26 goals in 161 shots... a 16.1%.

That doesn't say everything, and I would concede that Ovechkin is a *slightly* better goal scorer, he is by no means *much* better.
