    Sidney Crosby is a brilliant COMPLETE Hockey player who makes his teams dramatically better. Sid has won 3 Stanley Cups.
    Ovechkin always strikes me as a Clown. He over-celebrates all his goals. He's a showboater, who used to come off as a selfish player in his early career. Ovechkin was one-dimensional. A sniper. He finally does have a Cup, but he had one amazing supporting cast behind him, that's for sure. Washington was loaded this year.

    Time to re-record this thingy? Both entertainment and playoff value for Ovi is through the roof this year. However, comparison one on one is not accurate. Crosby would have not won 3 cups without Malkin who is an equal level player. If Kuzya turns into a bona fide high perfoming star like Malkin, Caps can win several more cups with Ovi.

  • Mike G

    Who's better Crosby or Ovechkin? Malkin... He also should be on this list and has the the same Stanley cup achievements as Crosby, he is the same talented as these two. I just want to mention having such partner is great advantage for Sid.

    Seems to me, that Ovechkin is currently way better help to his team than Crosby. But... It's the end of an era.
    Maybe it's too early now, but I think McDavid will overcome both of them soon. It's only matter of time and how he will sustain over the time. His playmaking ability, passing, faceoff skill is comparable to Crosby's. His athletism, speed, agility and scoring talent is comparable to those of Ovechkin. He is even faster and stronger on the puck and his talent might even grow.

  • Nick Weiss

    I will agree Crosby has the better rounded player, in a tough position, but all of the people saying it isn’t even close, are laughable. And Ovechkin hasn’t had anywhere near the supporting cast that Crosby has, either internationally or in the NHL. Crosby has fared far better versus Russian defensemen and goalies than Ovechkin has versus Canadian defensemen and goalies, but is anyone going to argue that that’s a fair comparison?

  • littleferrhis
    littleferrhis 22 дня назад

    I’ve watched a few highlights from both players, and I’ve reached my own conclusions. Crosby is a better skater than Ovi, he’s the kind of guy that’ll dangle to the point you don’t know where the puck is and then sneak it in right behind you when you least expect it. Ovi does dangles every now and then, but they are almost always simple easy to follow moves. Ovi makes up for this by being a better shooter. Ovi can get a puck in from anywhere in front of the blue line where the net is visible. From the side at practically impossible angles, from his feet, on his back, in any way shape or form. Offensively, if you were to put these two together, you would have Wayne Gretzky. Defensively Ovi is a lot more well rounded. He’s the kind of dude that will hit you square in the face and even get into fights despite the heart attacks from the management. This isn’t a knock against Crosby, even Gretzky wasn’t much of a hitter. So overall they kind of compliment each other for the most part so it’s hard to say whose better.

    Let's resolve this argument this way, with facts, not opinion:
    Stanley Cups: Crosby 3, Ovi 0
    Conn Smythes: Crosby 2, Ovi,0
    Olympic golds: do I need to say it?
    Don't get me wrong. Ovi has a passion I've never seen in a Russian player, and I will predict he will get a Conn Smythe and Cup soon, maybe in 2018. I will tell you this, Ovi has more respect for the way hockey is played in North America than any other European every to play. I love his physical engagement, passion and heart, which at one time was an exclusive Canadian trait.

      obviously you know a lot of nhl trophies... from those you mentioned only one is individual... make better research next time if you want to compare, compare individual trophies... Canada can win a trophy without Crosby and Pens are also very good even without him... And btw, europeans also like Ovechkin same as it is with Crosby... After all, he is the successor of Bondra.

    People always bring up how Ovechkin is better because Sid has Malkin, Kessel, etc. but they never mention how Ovi has had a top 5 center in Backstrom playing on his line pretty much his entire career. Backstrom has factored in on almost all of his points. Sid, Malkin, and Kessel are rarely on the ice together outside of the power play. Crosby has a higher PPG than Ovi playing mostly with Chris Kunitz and Pascal Dupuis.

    This is the dumbest comparison video. Sid is better and it’s not even close. Sid has 3 cups, 2 Playoff MVP trophies, more playoff points, more regular season trophies, has more international gold medals, and on top of it all has played 139 games less than Ovi and is only 6 points behind him career wise. Skill wise he’s better, he’s a better passer, better on defense, better skater, better puck protection, better hockey I.Q, all Ovi has is a better goal scorer. Sid is 3-1 in the playoffs again Ovi. Sid is better hands down and there’s no argument.

    Ovechkin is one of the greatest goal scorers of all time no doubt. However, he plays no defense, gets no assists besides tips and rebounds off his shots and is an extremely dirty checker. He leaves his feet on almost all his hits and never gets called on it. Ovechkin has never and will never win a cup, gold medal or World Cup as long as Crosby is standing. I have no idea how three cups, two conn smythes, two art rosses, two rocket richards, three ted Lindsays, two harts, seven time all star, world junior gold, two time Olympic gold and a World Cup could be rivaled by any player in the league today. One of the all time greats and undisputed best player in the word.
