    Wow, this is my first experience with WATCHMOJO. Lol. People actually subscribe to this? Have you every watched a sports game? Go watch an engineering channel. sports drama is ridiculous. you play sports, and then you drink beer. This seems like Ovy or Crosby is like a conspiracy about talent. I'm gonna go put on my tin foil hat and prey to the Crosby gods for Canada. BTW it's fine, my had is grounded by hockey sticks.

    Not even close. The world is over watching whiny Sidney with his petulant child act, his preferential treatment by the league and his hypocrisy regarding cheap shots. (Ok when he does it.). On the other hand, EVERYONE in the hockey world loves watching Ovi and his love for the game. His shooting, hitting, exuberance, his overall benefit to the sport. Not even close.

    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.

    • Buddy's Gaming Channel
      Buddy's Gaming Channel 5 месяцев назад

      Ok Bitch where are the capitals now? Ovechkin scored his 1,00th Point Before Crosby did. Sidney Crosby is anything but "Complete" He's a Crybaby Bitch who will wine at the ref to get his way. HE didn't win 3 Stanley Cups. his TEAM did. and he happened to be apart of that team when they won. He could've been easily traded for better players so many times. but he wasn't. Ovechking is a more Complete Player who realizes he is the Best player and the league and isn't so uptight and a crybaby about it. He Has Fun. That lets him Relive some stress from always being number 1 and so he can go back out on the ice and be Number 1 all over again season after season. Stay in Pittsburgh Bum.

      @Person how to phrase? how the fuck do you compare trophies from play? Trophies don't mean SHIT if your a crybaby who collects stats off of the Ref's Own Goodwill. He (Crosby) will bitch and cry at the ref's whenever a call doesn't go his way. Don't ever fucking compare trophies. you slimy fuck.

  • abel xxx
    abel xxx 6 месяцев назад

    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
    Mike G 6 месяцев назад

    A better question to ask is.. who would you rather have on your team - rather than entertainment value -- I'd still have Ovi by far ROFL. OVI IS KING

  • Stay Patriot

    Certainly that one had to win the Stanley Cup to be considered to be the best player in the world. Without the cup, you’re only one of the bests, NOT THE BEST.
