It's why whenever there's the daily "Who's the best player in the world?" thread, there's always people saying Datsyuk and (lately) Bergeron even though it's obviously not the case. Because "two way player!"
I don't get what Crosby being arguably the best player in the league has to do with saying that Datsyuk and Bergeron are elite 2-way centers. Anyone with common sense knows that Crosby is better than both. However, Datsyuk and Bergeron are both terrific centers in their own right, and I don't see what this has to do with Crosby... I don't think any somewhat knowledgeable, and honest hockey fan would disagree with my point here....
