Wonder how he got those 6 assists with since he NEVER gave up the puck.
Maybe Washington lost to Pittsburgh because Varlamov gave up 4 goals in the first period and Pittsburgh outshot Washington 18-5 in the first period of game 7. But I forgot, Ovechkin was on the ice solo for all of those goals and shots and let the four in since he was goaltending too.
I'm not going to debate with you about the reasons why Ovechkin is better than Crosby, there are plenty of threads to educate you about that, but just remember this year that Ovechkin has more assists in less games, and is also +41 compared to +11.
Or we could see what a poll of active NHL players have to say on the matter. This is from last week...
I would think they probably have a little more knowledge than you or I.
Wow they polled 50 NHL players, very scientific.
I'm sure the Blackhawks would have a different answer after his cheap hit on Campbell or the teamates of his other cheap hits.
Look he is one of the best goal scorers I have ever seen but certainly not the best overall player currently in the NHL.
It is a matter of opinion .... I would have a team of Crosbys before a team of Ovechkins because then I would have a TEAM.
