Are Malkin and Crosby by far the best duo in NHL?

Not really a duo since they don't play together that often.

Best duo is probably Kessel and Nathan's.

As noted, they rarely play together at even strength, hard to really call them a duo. They're by a wide margin the best "top 2 players on a single team", though. IMO Crosby, Malkin and McDavid are the top 3 players in the league, all reasonably close together, with a fairly wide gap between Malkin and whoever is 4th best.

It pains me to see the second listing considered a duo lol

This has been the case since the both of them came into the league. It's not even remotely close and there isn't even a shred of debate to be had. We're talking about the #1 and #3 best players of the last decade.

Here are players actually playing together as a duo who challenges them atleast a little bit.

Mcdavid+Draistl
Scheifele+Laine
Matthews+Nylander
Kane+Panarin
Ovi+Bäckström

Some im uncertain if they play together

Kucherov+Stamkos
Marchand+Pastrnak

And there are likely many more.

However Malkin+Crosby on same line....

Nobody touches them as 1/2 punch. Very few in history are a clearly better 1/2 punch at centre, excepting the obvious Gretzky/Moose etc.

It's not even close. Toews and Kane have their case, because Stanley Cups, but no way I would pick them over Malkin&Crosby.

Matthews has a lot of talent with him but no real identifiable partner yet.

Eichel doesn't really have a counterpart.

Benn and Seguin fell off the map pretty much.

McDavid and and Draisaitl? I'd give it a couple more years.

So you're left really with Toews and Kane, and obviously Sid and Geno fit in over the two of them.
Backstrom and Ovechkin is likely #2

1-2 centers for sure. I don't even see who is a better 1,2 punch. ?

Honestly this is why I can't take the list seriously. How do you not have Malkin on that list.

I think so.

Toews and Kane honorable mention, and future is McDavid and Draisaitl.

I wouldn't really call them a "duo". But if you mean the best top 2 players of a team the answer is yes, by far.

Yup.


Best 1-2 punch. But they're not a duo.


Unfair to think Crosby-Malkin isn't even the best 1-2 punch the pens ever had. Almost as unfair to think McDavid-Draisaitl isn't the best duo Edmonton has ever had.
