Asking a board when 7-8/10 people are from my own Country ? I live in Canada and I'm sure Crosby will win by 80-90% - book it


Hfboards : Opinion from mainly my homeland vs Video Proof



That's also 1-on-1 not some other Pens defensemen pushing Ovechkin and Crosby getting the Puck

You've counted the flags and determined the percentage of Canadian fans on the boards?

Calm down dude, it's no secret that mostly Canadians are on this board. If you can't see the abundance of flags for Canada, then see you later I already said, Ovechkin 5 MVP trophies - 3 Rockets - 1 Art Ross - lead PPG 3 years in a Row 2008-10 and GPG 2008-10 and 2013

Also posted the Video of Oveckin playing defense on Crosby - Proof

Your proof: forum (opinionated)

edit: My point was proved- but it's only an internet poll on what maybe 100 people? aren't there about 100 million+ fans of Hockey around the World (maybe only 10 millon Canadians) - That's what I thought

Not that Crosby is even near at winning the Selke, he is quite a bit better at his own end than Ovetshkin, but he also has to be since he plays center.

Crosby. You might have a poll if you switched Crosby for Malkin.

Crosby used to be an absolute train wreck defensively, just terrible. Hes gotten better but its hard to really see statistically how much better hes gotten since he hasn't played 80 games in a couple years now. Going by this year you can expect crosby to be on the ice for a 5v5 goal against every 24 minutes and Ovy every 19. They both face pretty even qualcomp. Crosbys zonestart was 48% which was about middle of the pack on his team for forwards. Ovies was 54%, highest on his. Crosby had 28 give aways, 15 take aways. Ovie 25 give aways 30 take aways.

Just going by numbers this season, crosby is better but neither of them are good. Let me compare them after theyve both played 80 games in the same season and ill let you know because small sample sizes can make anyone look like anything.

Crosby has already been on the ice for 4 playoff goals (4x more than his team had given up when he was not in the lineup) in just two games back and Tavares almost punished him with another due to bad defensive play today. He is just as bad defensively as Ovechkin and his defense is severely overrated.

Crosby is better, but neither is looking at a Selke win ever. Crosby isn't even good defensively. Just responsible

Ovechkin = JVR
Crosby = Bozak
Bergeron = exponentially better than all 4 combined

Honestly this isn't even close. Ovechkin is a huge difference maker with his hitting and goal scoring, not his defense. It just isn't one of his responsibilities.

Wonder how Datsyuk and Lidstrom and Zetterberg managed to win all those defensive polls against Canadians.

Using a video of a player making a hit in the neutral zone as proof of good defense is clueless.
