I watch a lot of Capitals games because most of my friends from college are Caps fans. As for Crosby, on nights when the Devils don't have a game I often do watch Penguins games for him and Malkin. Over several years, I have watched more than enough of both of them to form a valid opinion of them.

Offensive stats are not the only thing to consider with them. Corsi is important, and Crosby is amazing in that regard.

And then the real test, ask any GM or coach around the league which they'd rather have and you'll get the same answer from all of them.

That's one of the many flaws in your argument.
Crosby wasn't significantly better than Letestu (55.6% v 55.4%) but the media really pounded that story of Crosby working on his Face off in the off-season. No where near a Toews or Bergeron or Datsyuk level.

Like most Crosby vs. Ovechkin debates, this is totally hopeless.

55% is pretty damn good in the NHL, and Letestu is a scrub who doesn't take many faceoffs to begin with. Crosby's sample size is much larger, which makes it more impressive. He is an excellent two-way player who has still had 100+ point seasons.

I just cannot believe that you are trying to use a statistical argument against Crosby.
