So what. It is not like one can prove Crosby would have won any of those awards had he stayed healthy. Their PPG was basically the same (Ovechkin's miniscule bit higher in fact) and Ovechkin was the one who carried his team to the playoffs when they were not as strong this year. Crosby would have to be winning those awards year after year before others would deserve an asterix by his absence for part of the year anyway.
