3rd coach in less than 2 years, new position, new line(played with ribeiro at beginning of the season), lockout and he was still playing at roughly a PPG. The past 2 or so months he's been on fire and carried the team to the playoffs. Ovechkin leads the league in goals and during that "horrible" stretch where the caps were struggling he had 15pts in the first 19 games. Oddly enough, Toews also had exactly 15pts in the first 19 games of the season.
So no, crosby not playing for a quarter of the season is nothing like ovechkin not playing to an elite level . He was still playing and producing, just not to the level people expect.
