I view "best player" status to be a sort of interim title at the moment. Crosby doesn't have it right this second, but he's the last guy to have it, and if he comes back to form in the next season, he's going to keep it.

Also, on the subject of getting Sid off his game, the Habs did just as good if not a better job of it in 2010 than Giroux and co did last season. At least he was still scoring a bunch against Philly (even though that series was some of the most one-dimensional hockey I've seen the guy play in years), the Canadiens kept him off the scoresheet while getting in his head. The boarding penalty in the opening seconds of the last game at the Igloo sums up that series perfectly.
