Ovechkin vs Crosby

Well this could get heated…Alexander Ovechkin is a better player than Crosby this far into his career.  I am not just going by his amazing stats this year. 

The passion and energy he exhibits each and every night makes him a joy to watch.  He acts like a kid in a candy store every team he scores, or even his team scores for that matter.  He has been more productive on a team with less talent than Pittsburgh.

Sure Sid the Kid is a great player as well, but I see Ovechkin as a more dominating physical player.  He is the new power forward who can level a player and then feed a sweet pass to a teammate or roof a snap shot top corner.  That to me is what makes him more valuable.

Let the comments begin…

Alexander Ovechkin has recorded a hat trick already tonight to reach 52 goals on the year. 

He did it in only his 67th game of the season and becomes the fastest player to reach 50 goals since Pavel Bure needed  only 63 games in the 99-00 season. 

It is Ovechkin’s second 50 goal season as he notched 52 when he was a rookie.
