As far as I know hockey is not an individual sport. Even if Ovechkin and Orr are on the ice, Orr still has teammates and a goaltender playing with him who are working together to stop Ovechkin.

Bossy scored at will against any line with poor players? I guess Bossy must have scored most of his goals against terrible players then, while Ovechkin apparently scores against players of all types. That to me would make Ovechkin the superior player. That is unless your statement is a massive exaggeration...
