I came across a post where one said Kovalchuk should get the hype as well-- something in those lines. Crosby has a young team to back him up with: Malkin, Staal, Fleury. On the other side, Kovalchuk is without an effective line-mates. I think it's because of the #1 overall status from recent years for Crosby (even though Kovalchuk was in that spotlight as well not too long ago) and what the media has changed the way people see Crosby as and not really the kind of player he is. Everybody plays differently and I respect the way Crosby plays, but there are other players who are just as good who don't deserve much attention or close-to.
