The Top Ten

Sidney Crosby
It's really between Crosby and Ovechkin. My vote goes to Crosby because he brings home Championships, not just individual awards. Two Eastern Conference Titles in a row, One Stanley Cup, An Olympic Gold... and the Golden Goal! The Kid is The Man!


crosby #1 its no contest. just won rocket richard. amazing leader. just won cup and olympic gold. the people who dicide the hart are stupid for not voting crosby. ovechkin sucks!
If you want an it's all about me player it Ovechkin. If you want a player that makes everyone around him better it's Crosby.

2Alexander Ovechkin
Ovi doesn't has the "Name Alexander the Great" for no reason. By far the best in the NHL.
Hockey players are supposed to be tough. Crosby may have better stats, but when it comes to stepping up in a physical game he just can't hang with the big dogs like Ovi!
More individual awards than Crosby which shows that he is the better talent. The awards that Crosby has that ovi does not are TEAM awards. Crosby has always had the better team around him and ovi has carried the caps to 5 division titles in the past 6 years by himself. Ovi is the best!

Why is Cindy Crysby on top of this list? Ilya is a true man, he plays with meaning, and he doesn't cry for his mommy when he gets checked.
