But its not crazy, don't say its crazy until we see what each one of them can do.
According to most Russian "experts" who post here, the Russians will most likely send a "B" level team to play the CHL all-stars. So we probably won't see Ovechkin until the WJC.
Everyone's entitled to their oppinion, but remember Crosby's still a kid. If memory serves me right, he wasn't even in the top 5 in scoring at the recent U-17s (world's best '86 born players).
On the other hand, Ovechkin could probably be playing in the NHL right now. Or better yet, think if Alexander played against those '86 born players......Yikes!!!!
Both are miles ahead of everyone else in their age group, but Ovechkin is 2 years older than Crosby which makes a lot of difference.
