Is Sidney Crosby a better player than Alexander Ovechkin?

  • Sidney Crosby is better

    In the start of there careers undeniably ovechkin was better, however over the years ovechkin went to me first, not team first. Crosby has always been a team player and gets far less PIM. Lets not forget that crosby has played 707 games and got 338 G and 600 A, 938P
    Oveckin has played 839 games therefore giving him the advantage to having more points.
    Crosby has also won two gold medals and a stanley cup

  • Obie baby haha

  • Of course Crosby

    Look at the resume: 2 Olympic Gold Medals, Stanley Cup, Triple Gold Club + any award that Ovi has won Crosby has also won.
    Team player: Sid's always moving up and down the ice creating chances to score. He plays well both offensively and deffencively.
    Clean record: Crosby doesn't need any cheap hits to be the world's best player. Unlike Ovechkin he has a clean history without any nasty hits.
    Ovechkin's a great player but does not compare to Crosby.

  • Crosby is by far the better player

    Crosby does everything. He scores, assists, plays defense, back checks. He does all of the little things to help the team. Ovechkin just scores. He stands around and watches his teammates do all the hard work. He only looks for his shot. He's lazy and never helps on defense. I can't even believe anyone thinks this is even close. There is no comparison. Ovechkin is a scorer, that's it. Crosby is an all around great hockey player

  • Sidney Crosby is better than Alex Ovechkin.

    Crosby may not be scoring goals as often, but in terms of being a leader, teammate, and overall player, he is much better. He scores goals AND assists, and has one a Stanley Cup and two Olympic gold medals to date. Also, consider how Crosby has missed so many more games due to injury than Ovechkin, yet Crosby still has more points than total games played and a better career point-per-game rate.

  • Why is this even a question?

    Sidney Crosby is so much better than Alex Ovechkin. There's a reason why they named Sidney Crosby The Next One instead of Alex Ovechkin. Ovechkin doesn't know how to be a two way player like Sidney Crosby does. Sidney Crosby also has like 1000 assists and Ovechkin has like 20. Overall Sidney Crosby is the much better player in this argument.

  • Sidney Crosby is the best in the NHL.

    Sidney Crosby is the best in the NHL. Sidney Crosby has the most trophies,points,and the best leadership. The only reason why Alex Ovechkin has the most goals is because he decides to be selfish and shoots the puck. Sidney Crosby actually passes the puck which leads to goals. Sidney Crosby still has goals but not as many as Alex Ovechkin. Sidney Crosby is easily the best player in the NHL. Better than Alex Ovechkin.

  • Sidney Crosby is a much better hockey player than Alex Ovechkin

  • Yes Sid The Kid

    Crosby is better,assists,points and great leadership to any team. Leading team to Stanley ,Olympics gold. Ovechkin only gets goals because he always sits in his left side and waits for the puck to come to him and sometimes even misses so I say definitely Crosby over Ovechkin. LETS!!! GO!!! PENS!!!

  • Alex Ovechkin is better

    Alex Ovechkin scores more goals and got picket first in the 2004 draft. He wins more trophies than Sidney Crosby. Alex Ovechkin is the most famous player in the nhl. Alex Ovechkin has had more experience and has been more trained than Sidney Crosby. Ovechkin and Crosby both play their position.

  • Better at different things

    I am a die hard fan for Ovechkin, he is my main man. I think they are both great players, but they are better then eachother in different ways. Yes the fact the Crosby has a Stanley cup is true, but that doesn't make him a better play. You cant use that statement because Crosby didn't achieve that by himself, but say that you make him seem selfish.
    I think Ovechkin is the better play based of status. He has more over all goals then Crosby. But this will be a topic that no one can agree with, because we all think we are right, they are both hall of fame players. But yet so much diffrent

  • Ovechkin is better

    Ovechkin is an amazing player. All Crosby can do is assist and he's assisting guys like Malking, Igunla etc. Ovechkin has to lead his team basically by himself. He is the only reason they even stand a chance. His team isn't nearly as good as the Pens yet with him they somehow make it. That's why Ovechkin a better!

  • No

    I do not say no because I personally favor one over the other myself, but, it is not fair to say one is most definitely better than they other. They both have qualities about them that make them very good players and make them very good at what they do. Of course they both have their downfalls and negatives that the other might not have, but, neither of them can be categorized as better than the other.

  • Ovechkin is Simply Better

    He has more experience and while they are both phenomenal players, I can only see Alexander Ovechkin as the supreme candidate in this situation. Were it a battle of character, then I would vote Sidney Crosby, but that's not the debate at hand. There is simply no doubt whatsoever.

  • Not at this time

    Ovechkin can bring a level of hard hitting to the game that Crosby can not, to the point that he nearly beheaded Jagr during an Olympic game of all things. They're both highly effective scorers, both mediocre defensively with Crosby probably being a little better. Two elite players anybody would be happy to have, I'd give Ovechkin a slight nod.

  • No

    No, I don't think that Sidney Crosby is a better player than Alexander Ovechkin. Who's to say that one player is better than another? Both have their strengths and their weaknesses and overall, both of them are excellent players in their own ways. Sidney Crosby is a good player, though.

  • Ovechkin is writing history

    Besides having more individual trophies (14 vs. 8), if we lump them all together), Ovechkin emerges as a more historically important player. He is a consensus top5 goal-scorer of all time, has third-most goal-scoring titles, has third-most 50-goal seasons despite the era, and the list can go on and on: nobody has led the league in even-strength goals more times than Ovechkin, nobody has led the league in PPG more times than Ovechkin, etc.
    And where is Crosby in the record book, if we do not mention ppg, which is bound to go down with time, and already is? Two Art Rosses, top100 ever in points... He still has a long way to go before he gets on the radar in something. By which point Ovechkin might well establish himself as the best goal-scorer ever and the best LW ever.
