Yeah sure Ovy likes to throw some hits...but ummm sometimes it doesnt go as planned...Malkin>Ovy
Either ways its still nice to see the nhl...having that Jordan Vs Bird type going with these guys and some others.
OH and thank you Tampa Bay..For giving Ryan Malone and contract that Pittsburgh wasnt stupid enough to pay..He's a very average player who only looked good the last 2 seasons when he played on a line with Crosby.Hes Been my least liked Penguin for several years.
You are one funny dude. You have Malkin and Crosby in front of AO??????????
Everybody misses a hit. Hell, Mario tried to start a fight with Bobby Gould, who was 5'11" and weighed 195lbs to Mario's 6'4" and 230 lbs., and Bobby KO'ed Mario. So missing a hit means nothing. I'm trying to figure out how Crosby and Malkin are better then AO. What things do they do that make them better? They don't score more. They don' hit more, they don't play defense better. They don't kill penalties. They're average at best in faceoffs. If they're not scoring the do little for the Pens. With AO you have to watch for his scoring, physical play, defense. So what makes them better then AO other then they play for your team.
Here's the goal
A few highlights
Here's Sid doing what he does best
C'mon man...You know im a homer..That and i know im ready to get flamed by all the Pittsburgh and Crosby haters..
But in all seriousness...I put Crosby above Ovy maybe after next season Malkin will be above Ovy..You talk about 2 way play and PK....Crosby is well above average forechecking and backchecking....And why have your Number 1 GUY out their killing penalties when he shouldnt have to waste ice time on being down a player.Ovy is a better natural scorer than Crosby when it comes to finsihing..But overall seeing the ice and making plays Crosby i think is better.Sid is very average face-offs though...Staal is the PK Face off forward master.
Im waiting for Washington to try and land a big W or 2 to play with Ovy...Much like Im saying WTF??? now that Hossa and Malone are gone...July 1st will be interesting....Hossa said he would be willing to take less and play for a contender..well...he lied....ATleast Malkin isnt greedy yet
As for the PKing. Why do you think Daytzuk and Zetterberg do it? With Daytzuk and Zetterberg being able to shutdown other teams scoring threats (Malkin and Crosby to name a few) they won the Cup. Look at the games great players, Modano, Forsberg, Sakic, Stevie Y, Fedorov, Messier, tell me what they have in common? They all have won the Cup. Vinny Lecavlier and Martin St. Louis in Tampa play the PK. Kovolchuk in Atlanta is starting to. The games greatest players did it except two, Gretzsky and Mario.
I'll say it again, Sid and Malkin a great offensive player, they're not great hockey players. Being a great hockey player is being a two-way player and that they're not.
What made Michael Jordan the greatest basketball player of all time? All the scoring titles? Nope. Combine the scoring titles with his Defensive Player Of the Year award, most shots blocked in a career by a guard, second most steals in a career by a guard and 9 time NBA All Defensive Team. That's what made him the best ever at his sport.
