Crosby with his developing all-round game may have been at a similar level (and IMO deserved the Hart Trophy with the way things actually played out), but at that point, I would have said Ovechkin was the league's best player, based on his performance over the past three seasons.
You said "clearly a step up" though. I don't think that was any longer the case. Beginning in the 09 playoffs, actually.
