Do the math: 87 > 8

Is it absolutely no surprise that Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby, in only his second NHL season, became the first player to hit 100 points this season with a goal in the Penguins' 3-2 overtime victory over the Rangers?

In this snapshot of their young careers, Crosby is so far ahead of Washington's Alex Ovechkin that any comparison is simply unfair.

They're both great players. Now, however, Crosby is no-brainer.

What do you think?

Maybe I'm still jaded by my experiences with Crosby, but I still have to rank Ovechkin as better, barely. Ovechkin is far more willing to play a physical game-- something like four times more hits than Crosby this year, last time I checked. Additionally, look at who Crosby has around him vs. who Ovechkin has.

This will be the next generation of the Gretzky vs. Lemieux, "who was better" debate. And I continue to stand by my belief that it's Lemieux.
