Is Datsyuk Better than Crosby?

He bypassed an entire team from end to end and scored. I don't think Crosby could do that. So is Datsyuk better than Crosby?

Datsyuk is the most overrated player on this message board...

Crosby is obviously a superior player, how datsyuk has 2 out of 7 votes is beyond me

Crosby in his worst year is still better than Datsyuk.

Not a chance, people get googly-eyed watching guys like Datsyuk and Kane because of their fluidity and what they try to accomplish on the ice. Meanwhile, Crosby goes 10 feet away from the net and just deflects a slapshot to the top corner. He's so sick it's like nothing ever happened.

Well considering 2011 was his worst year stat wise he had 37 points, Dats has had 70 points plus 5 out of the last 7 years.

Datsyuk definitely has sick hands. Better than anyone in the league.

That said, Crosby is better.

Pavel Datsyuk is the greatest great to ever great. Crosby is a flash in the pot.

The thing with Crosby sometimes I wonder how he is so good. He can sometimes look very average. Then he will just do some plays that no one else does.

Don't people get sick of these threads?

Crosby is the best player in the world. There is only Malkin who has been comparable to him in last years and even he falls short when Crosby is playing.

Dats is amazing and one of the top talents in the world. I also think that for stretch of two years he was in the discussion for the best player in the planet. He just never was. He was only in the discussion.

Now he is just great. Not best.

No, Datsyuk is not better than Crosby overall.Datsyuk is a better defensive player and better dangler. Crosby with the edge pretty well everywhere else.

I have seen Crosby do it, I know I am in the minority of Wings fans and Datsyuk is great, but he isn't better than Crosby, not offensively. More exciting to watch shift to shift in my opinion, but they both do some pretty sick things.

LMAO. And the eternal HfBoards mancrush for Datsyuk continues. Holy hell this guy gets overrated. I would easily pick 3 forwards before him if not more. How can people realistically vote yes to this question ??? Crosby AINEC. Crosby was always better, is better and will always be better. Ppl voting Datsyuk are either blind homers or dont watch much hockey.

I think the people that are voting yes appreciate Dats game overall more than sid as outsider fans or just wanting to create a lil tension . I think sid is great actually, a fantastic player. I also think all the NHL hype kind of makes it like oh its the cool thing to do to think he's the best you know what I mean. Crosby has and will show how skillfull he is there is no doubt about that. I'm sure pens fans see more of the off ice and that type thing than anyone else on this board so that also has a lot of stock in it too. I look at both players in a different mind set, I look at sid he's a great generational talent and I look at dats and he is just the diamond in the rough guy that turned out to be super sick. My homer vote is always going to go for him, love his style, his skill and his ability to carry literally a line/team for periods of time. Not to discredit sid, just me being a homer and as a wings fan if sid was on our team, we would be hated more than we already are lol. Both guys are sick in their own regard and I think sid will end up putting up more records and getting some more accolades providing he can stay healthy.

Yeah bro we get it you love Datsyuk. Too bad the poll is WHO'S BETTER and not who you prefer to watch. Crosby at 18 just entering the NHL was already better than Datsyuk in his prime. Datsyuk = fancy and overhyped 30 goal scorer with great 2way game.

I would take Malkin, Stamkos, Crosby, Tavares before Dats

You seemed to miss the part where I said he would put up more records and get more accolades. So I did say he was better man lol.
