You can claim "But Crosby in 41 game!!!" all you want. I bet you can go find a 41-game stretch in Ovechkin's best years that is comparable. Half a season is just that; half a season. Unless you're Mario Lemieux and play 60 games, but still win the Ross by more than ten points, half a season doesn't count as better than a full season.
Since this topic also includes Jagr, Jagr is the other player that missed 19 games or more in his career and won the Art Ross (he won the Art Ross in 1999-00 despite playing in only 63 games). BTW that same season Jagr before his injury scored 71 Pts in 39 games ( a better half season stretch that Crosby).

Jagr has 1 Hart, 3 Pearsons, 5 Art Ross trophies, 2 Stanley Cups.

Forsberg has 1 Hart, 1 Art Ross and 2 Cups.

Ovechkin has 2 Harts, 3 Pearsons, 1 Art Ross but no Cups.

Those 3 players on trophy count alone combined take the prize.

Jagr is the best player outside of Lemieux of the last 15 years.

Ovechkin has been the best since post-lockout and Forsberg was the best two-way player of the bunch.
