I'll admit I'm not a big fan of Crosby (not because of the whole rivalry issue or his talent, but more of his whiny personality and dives), but its not difficult to see my point. Sure AO has Semin, but who does Crosby have? Malkin, Sykora, and company.....many of them proven finishers. Backstrom for the Caps is good, but thats another point;
he is talented but more of a product of AO
(kind of like comparing Kane to Backstrom....Backstrom had AO....Kane had ??)
completely false. The passes that Backstrom has been sending to Ovechkin for the second half of the season, only about 2 or 3 other guys in the league can make. It is not a coincidence that Ovechkin exploded when Backstrom got comfortable and found his game.
