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.
