From what I've seen it doesn't look like Crosby's 100% this season. He seems just a step slower, or maybe exhausted. He's still damn good though, ha.

I like the Canadian boys' but that Malkin is huge and highly skilled. He can out stickhandle sid, he can out score sid, while doing everything else equal to Sid.

Im going to have to say Malkin.

Im sorry maybe you missed the part where it said 0 POINTS IN FIRST 5 GAMES.

he let me make it more clear:



0 POINTS IN FIRST 5 GAMES


Hope that helped.



Seriously, all you had to do was watch the series. Crosby wanted it and Malkin was invisible. Crosby was the only Pen consistently putting up a worthy effort (Hossa too I guess). Crosby is a better leader, wants to improve his game more, and wants to win more. You could just tell by watching them in the SCF last year.

great, the net result was still crosby with only 2 points more. Did it ever occur to you that Malkin may have been tired? It was malkin, not Crosby who was the warrior through the first 3 rounds and clearly wanted to win more.

Crosby is better. As far as this year, Malkin is getting a bit lucky with a few extra gift assists and secondary assists than he should otherwise get. I would have thought he would be scoring more goals though, his advantage over Crosby is in no way his playmaking abilities, it's his size. reach and ability to score in the dirtier areas more easily, while still being a great dangler and sniper like Crosby.

Crosby is the best player in the league though. He gets a lot of hate in the same way a lot of people love to bash things that are popular or things they think get too much attention. I have no doubts personally that Crosby is definitely the better player, even if it isn't by a huge margin.

I just hate Crosby. Every time someone skates by him and he looks like he just took a doublebarrled shotgun point blank.
I'd still take him on my team though

You do realize how pathetic he was in the SCF right? 6 damn games till he got his 1st point. That is ouright embarrassing

Malkin is the 2nd best player in the league behind Ovechkin. Crosby is the 3rd best player in the league. Thus I voted for Malkin.

I can guarantee the gap would be larger in favor of Malkin if he was Canadian.

No. As a fan who watched every game, they were virtually neck-and-neck leading the team and trading off virtuoso performances until the Richards hit.

Ask any decent contributor on the Pens board and they'll tell you the same thing.

Wow. That's just about as seemingly wrong of a comparison as I've ever seen (besides the obvious points of being "highly skilled" and outscoring Sid, which he's doing now). Impressive. I enjoy the "Malkin is huge" part best. Does anyone out there consider Miroslav Satan to be "huge"? I think Malkin needs a little more time in the weight room before his 4 inches can make up for the 5 solid lbs of body weight, and probably 10+ pounds of muscle that Sid has on him.

I think it's pretty safe to say that, in fact, Sid probably has Malkin in most of the skills categories. The difference this year, is that Malkin has Sid in the performance category, and that could very well translate into a Hart trophy, and perhaps a Lester B.

In fairness I think it works both way. There is probably some bias in favor of Crosby and against Malkin (and Ovechkin) since he is Canadian and they are Russian, but there is also probably some bias against Crosby because he has been marketed the NHL golden boy. So it probably evens out in the end.

Malkin, mainly because I think he has the most potential to imporve the most from where crosby and even ovechkin are now.

You can't judge him by 4 games, i mean hell he was a force in the playoffs up until then... it's not like he just disappears in big games.

Man the Pens are lucky to have two players like this. Jeebus. TWO once in a generation type players on the same team only a few years apart.

Not to be an ass but the whole idea of the Pens having 2 once-in-a-generation players is a logical fallacy. But I know what you mean..

Anyway, I voted Crosby because I do think he is the (marginally) better player but I actually think Malkin might be a better fit in LA. He'd probably turn Frolov into a 90(+?) point player and I can envision those two really complementing each other. Throw Simmonds on the wing for some jam and that line would be fun to watch.
