They were very close before and Crosby's clearly the far superior player now. But I know you're so hung up on the injuries you will never concede this until you see him play X amount of games, while most seem to have already done so.
Crosby is superior to Ovechkin in the playoffs and has by far the best playoff PPG, far better than his and Malkin's and anyone else's (and you can't bring up the small sample size here, Crosby's body of work in the post-season is large and substantial). Being outplayed by Malkin one year changes nothing, Crosby has outplayed him every other year and his overall body of work there is the best.
I don't give half a crap about the Olympics and never cite the golden goal as anything big, but Crosby's "choking" is ridiculously overstated and used against him here. One of the lamer slights against him.
