They are completely different players, Datsyuk is a playmaker while Ovechkin is a pure goal-scorer. Even in his worse season, Ovy scored twice as many goal as Datsyuk that season. I know Datsyuk possesses more intangibles and is more of a finesse player, but personally, i think ovechkin is more valuable and is more capable of changing the outcome of a game.
Well you have the right to your own opinion but Ovy is pretty useless unless he is scoring goals. His own coach didn't even trust him in the playoffs and practically benched him for large periods of time. I prefer the player that can be trusted in any situation
