Crosby vs Ovechkin head-to-head

If the question is, ‘Who is more likely to be in more highlight reels for Top Ten Plays of the week?’, I think the answer has to be Ovechkin. On the flipside, if the question has to do with putting your team in the best position to win, I don’t think there is any question, Crosby has the edge. My feeling is that although Ovechkin has the perfect combination of talent and genetics, he doesn’t have the mental approach to propel his team to a championship at the highest level of the game. At times, he seems unable to put the team before his performance and that has not worked out well for the Capitals in the playoffs. It will be interesting to see if Crosby is back at it come playoff time, and if so, will Ovechkin and the Capitals stay alive long enough to get a shot to finally get past Crosby and Pens. Somehow, I doubt it.

    Original Six games? That's a thing of the past. This is the Nu-NHL. For better or worse, I don't think O6 games are sotnhmieg worth marketing.For that matter, most of the divisional opponents of the Wings are "ho-hum" games as well. But in other divisions, it is pretty heated and closely contested.I don't want to count our chickens before they hatch, but I don't see a serious threat from anyone in our division to take the thrown away.In an ideal situation in my eyes, I'd like to see more matchups (at least one game each) against Eastern Conference opponents.

    Sid the Kid has a while to go before he's the gtreeast player in the world.But all I gotta say is, it's about damn time. I haven't been able to watch hockey on TV for forever been surviving on Yahoo! and Versus online broadcasts and whatever live streams I can scrounge up. Three cheers for the Jan. 1 game! No wonder Fleury was pissed when he got injured.
