I am going Ovechkin. Not because of my hatred towards Crosby or my bias towards Russian players. That actually has nothing to do with my decision. This is not to take away from Crosby's talent in the least, but Ovechkin WILL put people in the seats. If you are starting a franchise, you want to build up revenue. Ovechkin's marketability is FAR greater than Crosby's. There has been more Ovechkin merchandise sold than any other player since he has come into the league. They are obviously the top 2 players in the league. Which is greater is yet to be determined, and I dont want all you Canadians who now think that Crosby is your savior for winning the gold gives him the free ride either.
