You could say Ovechkin is streaky, but when a 30 goal season is HORRIBLE for him, you know there's something special.
- Datsyuk is GROSSLY overrated on these boards. I have NOTHING against the Red Wings, and nothing against the guy himself. But when he's constantly listed as one of the best players ever, and top 3 currently, it's laughable to me. Great all round player, but generational talent? Hardly.
- Stamkos deserves to be up there simply because of his consistency. From what I've seen, the guy is always on. Sure there are nights he doesn't score, but he's constantly a threat, and that makes him top tier.
I'm in totally agreement with you and I hate when people just look at point totals and say the player is better
