Yup...it most certainly does. :D

Crosby - 78 points in 45 games, +/- is PLUS 15
Ovechkin - 68 points in 50 games, +/- is MINUS 10

Stats are not everything but comparing Ovechkin to Crosby is like comparing apples and oranges.

Crosby makes everyone around him a better player. He's a playmaker and a distributor of the puck. He's the first teenager to lead the league in scoring at some point in a season since a guy named Gretzky did it in 1980.

People forget that he is only 19 years old. Last year was the first time he's played against MEN. Up until that point he was playing against 16-21 year olds.

Ovechkin is a GREAT scorer. A pure goal scorer that plays with some edge (as does Crosby). He does not do the same to make the players around him better though. He's a one on one force that can do as much on his own as any player in the league right now.

He had an advantage though. He played in the Russian Superleague when he was 16 years old and has been playing against men, not kids, ever since. He's also 21 years old. Yes, he's been in the NHL for the same period of time as Crosby but the 4 seasons in the Superleague and the fact he is 2 years older made him much more prepared for the NHL then Crosby.

Compare Crosby to Ovechkin in two years, that is when they will be in equal footing.

In the end though, they are both once in a generation type talents.

I hate the Sidney/Ovechkin argument...

Unified did a good job summing it up thought.

I'm surprised security let that sign in. Then again, she might have endured a man advantage to get it in.
