    And your reasoning for that order is? It Ovechkin and all the rest ? If Ovechkin were available in the 2003 draft he would have been the number one pick also. Put him in a draft with Crosby and he is still picked number one over all . Why you ask? Because he is the best over all player in years. He all the tools that Crosby is lacking and besides he is bigger faster physical player . Any questions >

    And this has nothing to do with you being a Caps fan? Take off the rosed colored glasses.

    Seen both play live.

    Crosby vs Ovechkin in my eyes based on what I have seen live and on TV:

    Skating:
    Crosby < Ovechkin (not by much though)

    Stickhandling:
    Crosby = Ovechkin (some my think different, but not if you see them play live)

    Shooting:
    Crosby < Ovechkin

    Passing
    Crosby > Ovechkin

    Hockey Sense
    Crosby > Ovechkin (by a large margin)

    Vision and Playmaking
    Crosby > Ovechkin (by a large margin)

    Strength:
    Crosby = Ovechkin (Crosby does not get taken down easy at all, just like Ovechkin)

    Ability to work the boards:
    Crosby = Ovechkin

    Defensive play
    Crosby = Ovechkin

    Checking ability:
    Crosby < Ovechkin

    on ice attitude:
    Crosby = Ovechkin

    IMO I would take Crosby over Ovechkin by far, the way Crosby sees the ice and thinks the game out is like only one other player could (Gretzky), this ability is what seperates superstars and Players in the ranks of Gretzky, Orr, Lemieux, Howe type ranks. Though I think Ovechkin will be a superstar down the road, I think Crosby will be the biggest name in Hockey since Mario Lemieux.
