    It's officially time to STOP this BS!

    Alright, This has been bothering me for quite some time. I know everyone is going to have their own opinions on who is better Crosby or Ovechkin. Personally, I think they are both the top 2 players in the league. It is impossible to compare their playing styles as they both are so very important to their respective teams. I myself, would rather build my team around Crosby as I think he is an all around better player at both ends of the ice. I understand that there will be a lot of people who would say the opposite, and that is very fair because it is a very close debate.

    BUT, having said that... it is OFFICIALLY time for people to STOP saying that Crosby has the better supporting cast because it is undeniably NOT TRUE.

    Here are the facts: Pittsburgh has Crosby and Malkin. Two of the top 3 players in the league and both scoring at better than a point per game pace. Next highest scorer is Bill Guerin with 35 pts.

    Washington has: Ovechkin, Backstrom, Semin and Green. ALL with over 45 points and ALL scoring at more than a point per game pace. HOW THE HECK IS THIS A WEAKER SUPPORTING CAST???

    Whenever there is a debate of who is better, all Ovechkin supporters always bring up the point "oh well Crosby has a better supporting cast, Ovechkin does it on his own." That is the biggest crock of BS ever.

    I'm not saying don't support Ovechkin as your favorite player because I agree, he is amazing! Just next time you try to back up your statement, check the facts before you go saying that Crosby has the better supporting cast... It's time for this to stop!
