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.
There's no guarantee, I'm simply saying that Crosby won his awards when all the elite competition was healthy, and Ovechkin didn't.
As for the PPG, Crosby's dropped after he came back and was regaining his conditioning and timing after being out for months.
