Re: NHL thread. 2011-12 season.

Skill means nothing if you don't know how to apply it into a team game. Applying your skills into a team game is a big part of being the best player in the world.

Crosby's stats will forever be less than what they could be as he plays within a team first concept.

EDIT: Basically what Mystery said.

Exactly.

Skill only counts for something in sports like golf and tennis.

Ovechkin is great though, top 5 in the league for sure.

There is no argument that can be made that Ovechkin is a better player than Crosby.
there is no saying what he could do with a me first mentality. How is that working for Ovie right now? All me know is that he can setup his teammates great and sets himself for goals.

Fine, I'll wait until another year when Ovie has a better year than Crosby, it will happen too, and then wait until everyone jumps back onto the bandwagon. Shit like this happens way too much in sports it annoys me, I'm not going to go by who is having a better year and change my opinion every year, or month in some cases, I'll go from what I've seen career wise. Hell, if Capitals beat the Pens in the playoffs I'm sure that will probably shift the argument towards Ovie again.

Re: NHL thread. 2011-12 season.

Basing everything off stats is stupid. You said it yourself. Crosby is better and will be for eternity or until Ovechkin learns how to play a team game.

Re: NHL thread. 2011-12 season.

You guys brought up stats, you guys are clearly basing your argument off stats, so my argument still stands.

What? No. Crosby is better because he actually uses his skill and talent to excel at a team game, which hockey is.

What is your argument exactly? From what I got from it you're conceding that Crosby is better right now but Ovie will be again once he's leading the league in scoring again. I said Ovie won't be until he learns how to play a team game. I at no point have used stats in my argument.

I really have no idea why you keep bringing up more skilled. What exactly do you mean by that? Are you saying he can put on a better deak while using two sticks and balancing a jug on his head? There are a boat load of players in the NHL with more talent than they know what to do with, unfortunately there's way more to it than that. All that skill needs to be used to excel at a team game or it's essentially useless.

Lupul will get more points than all of them just to make us Duck fans feel even more worse than we do now.

HATER.

I assumed the sarcasm was more than obvious. He has held the scoring lead longer than anyone would have thought he would and that much you must admit.

ps. PHIL
