    As a Caps fan, I will grant that Crosby has had more success in the NHL playoffs and the international stage, but I still want Ovi on my team. He’s just an awesome goal scorer.

    you guys need to stop bringing up cups and medals team efforts are irrelevant to who’s a better player. Canada is stacked like hell of course they’re gonna have more medals and the penguins overall are better than the caps especially in the playoffs so the ovi crosby debate shouldn’t have anything to do with that

    Sid is fifth all time in ppg only behind Wayne, Lemieux, orr and bossy. Nobody in the league is even close to him

  • Machiavelli Nikolai
    Machiavelli Nikolai 11 дней назад

    Not a debate anymore. Crosby points per game in career with 500 games minimum is only behind Wayne, Lemieux, orr and bossy. 5th all time. He has 15 points less but 135 less game played. Without injuries sid first 9 years in the league would have been 100 plus points. 3 cup, 2 gold, junior gold. He is a generational player. Mcdavid himself will not have his career. Once mcdavid slows down a bit he will be done. Unlike sid i dont see the game of Conor evolving. Sid is talented but train and plays like a 4th liner grinder. I dont see any Guy his size working in the danger zone. Just watch Kane who rarely goes in the corner. Lastly if you do simple math for eras Lemieux, Richard and yzerman are the best goal scorer, Wayne is fifth and ovie is 8.

    Seeing as how ovi just got goal 600 and how crybaby, i mean crosby, is 195 goals away from that, i would say the ovi is better. And dont come at me with that assist bullcrap because ovi has more assists, too. As for watchability, id much rather watch ovi than crosby complain to the refs every time he gets touched. Just because crobs had other really good pmayers around him, like kessel, fleury, jagr, and cullen, sure he has more cups. But that makes ovi even better, because he dudnt have those people carrying him around.

    Ovi is odviously better. It took Ovi only 8 seasons to score 500 goals. It took Crosby about 10 seasons just to get 400. And the reason Ovi doesnt have a cup, is because if his terrible teamates. Sid on the other hand, has super powers like Malkin and Guentzel. Also, Crosby is just a bitch.

    I'd say Crosby, but it's much closer than people think. Sure Crosby has the Stanley Cup championships, but people often forget that Crosby has been teammates with arguably the second best player in the world (Malkin) for the past decade. It takes a team to win a cup. Not taking anything away from him. He's still the best player in the league, but to act like they aren't close is ignorance in my opinion.

    By the way, for those saying Crosby has 2 Stanley Cups, Olympic gold etc, are you saying that Mezut Paul is a better player than Lionel Messi because he has more world cup winners medals, it's an utterly ridiculous argument and doesn't prove anything

    Alex all day long for me, and that comes from a lifetime Pens fan. Alex for me is like the Messi of ice hockey, when he gets the puck you get that feeling that he might do that something special in the same way as Messi does on a football pitch. Don't get me wrong, I love Crosby, he is a great player but for me Alex has the edge

    Garbage. Comparing teams again on half the review, not them as players. Goal scoring good. Entertaining, who cares. How about hits? Ovi is a better goal scorer, Sid can score but passes more, gee maybe because he is a Center? Rivals yes. I will take Ovi for the goals and hits. That’s what makes hockey exciting.

    Not a good Crosby vs Ovechkin, 2/3 of Crosby’s points was from the team he plays on, overall skill is a valid point, but if it was truly a 1 on 1, it would be a 2-1 with Ovechkin winning

    When all you do is shoot your going to score more goals! Crosby is an all-round player. Every year Ovechkin is the only player in the scoring standings with more goals than assists, which means he can't pass.
