Default Re: Crosby vs Ovechkin vs Malkin - Who is the best??

Don't get me wrong...Malkin is a heckuva 1a...but he is allowed to flourish a bit more because teams try and shut Crosby down.

you also forgot the defense and faceoff parts...leave those out and you have ...well, the caveman.
After reading the idiotic threads over the past couple of weeks, I ask the question - "Who is worse...Steeler fans or Eagles fans?" Keep in mind that Eagle fans do not know what it's like to win a SB much less 6 and 2 this decade.
