I lean towards Stamkos for these reasons...

1. Who knows if Ovechkin will go to the KHL. Age 35? Would cut potentially a few years off his NHL career. Jagr would be #2 all time in NHL scoring had he not gone to the KHL for 3 years.

2. Ovechkin plays a more energetic, crash and bang game for his goals. He has a ton of energy. How long will that last? Not too many guys like Ovechkin have ever existed, so its hard to make a comparison. He seems like the kind of guy who might slow down late in his career, as opposed to Stamkos who seems more Brett Hull-esque, will score goals even when he can't skate any more.
