    Crosby's vs. the Oilers



    Ovechkin's first goal of his hat trick vs. the Habs

    Crosby in a landslide, Ovy's looked good but it was a seeing eye shot that he just turned and unloaded that got through. Crosby's was very orchestrated

    Crosby's, although any 3v3 goal is less impressive than one during an actual hockey game.

    Crosby’s is one of the most overrated goals I’ve ever seen. Deked around Strome playing D in 3 on 3 lmao

    Overrated goal or not, it's still more impressive than that Ovechkin goal which is something pretty much any player is capable of doing. Samuel Pahlsson has scored a near identical one just off the top of my head.

    Because turning and firing a shot from the slot without any defense trying to stop you is more impressive than carrying the puck in and undressing the defender before roofing a backhander from close range? I guess?

    I'm not sure what Crosby did to you but you lose a lot of credibility when you blindly slam anything Crosby does. Not the best way to make a good impression.

    Since the thread got locked right away... how blacked out were you when you made a thread calling namestikov a top 10 player last night?

    Crosby's, that goal might have been 1 of the best I've seen in all my yrs. of watching hockey.

    I thought so too the first time I watched it. Then I watched it again and realized he beat Strome who looked tired/exhausted given the random stick swings and the big ass loop he does to turn around when Crosby cuts back. It was a nice backhand finish, but when you break the play down he beat a forward 1 on 1 who looked dead tired in the NHL's wonderful 3 on 3 OT period.

    Also a forward who is known for getting walked by much lesser players than Crosby. Visually it is amazing but in context not one of the best, certainly not of all time anyway. Easily better than the Ovechkin goal in this thread though.
