With Crosby and Malkin we've rarely seen them both be great at the same time. That year was 2009. Malkin wins the Art Ross with 113 points and Crosby has 103. They win the Cup with 36 and 31 playoff points respectably. Other than that, either one of them has been injured, or Malkin has been inconsistent or one of them has just been bad in the playoffs. Or both of them. Imagine if both of these guys were "on" at the same time?

I guess in a way Sakic and Forsberg have that as well. In the postseason one of them was usually more noticeable than the other. But to be honest they carried the Avs better than Crosby and Malkin carried the Pens. Maybe they lose to Dallas a couple times in the conference final, but they don't lose to the Rangers, Canadiens, Flyers in poor fashion. I guess 1998 is the only time that they lost to a team that made you think "Woah, that shouldn't happen."
