Depends on what you're considering "two-way"

I think it's fair to say that Crosby is just as far ahead of Datsyuk offensively (now, not 4 years ago) as Datsyuk is ahead of Crosby defensively.

In the last 3 years Datsyuk only has 16 more points despite playing 74 more games, that's not just "one tier" below.

Which topic has more ambiguity? Two way play or most valuable player.

Regarding the question, at what point does Crosby > Datsyuk offensively make Datsyuk > Crosby defensively a moot point?

Using plus minus to put over Crosby is mildly amusing. If plus minus meant jack **** in terms of two way play Ovechkin would've ran away with the Selke three seasons ago, and the only Norris competition for Jeff Schultz would've been Mike Green.

Crosby's not as good as Datsyuk defensively, but the guy gives his all for sure. He will back-check, and the biggest thing is that he actually goes down-low and helps out his defense a ton. It's nice to (some) superstars at least trying to play a good defensive game.

2-Way means Offense and Defense. Not just defense. Crosby is the superior player. I also think he is underrated defensively.

Since the question isn't "who is the better defensive forward" I picked Crosby.

I think it's safe to say that Datsyuk won that poll .
