http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh...1&postcount=34 is probably the most extensive profile I've ever made of a player.

I would also see if you could find a YouTube video of his profile from the Legends of Hockey series

Pittsburgh's best duo was in 1995-1996, when Jaromir Jagr and Mario Lemieux were arguably the best two players in hockey, or at least two of the top three (Eric Lindros).
Malkin and Crosby have been very effective when put on the ice at even strength together, but it doesn't happen that often. Similar to Sakic and Forsberg in this way.

Top 2 players in NHL on same team

Just seeing Crosby and Malkin being pretty much the consensus 1-2 players in the game, I was wondering what other duos held that distinction.

Mario-Jagr circa 1995?

Esposito-Orr 1968-75?

Hull-Mikita 1963-1968?

Howe-Lindsay 1950?

Depending on the season and your viewpoint it could have been Gretzky and either one of Coffey/Messier/Kurri. It didn't take long for Mario to sneak in there though.

The 1979 Islanders probably have 3 out of 5 of the best players that year. Lafleur and Dionne being the outsiders.

But yeah, Crosby and Malkin are the two best players right now. However, they have to play better than they did tonight against the Flyers, that was just a choke job
