It's been posted for the last three years. Okay, not this specific article, but the comparison thing. Without even reading it, I'm sure the writer came up with exactly nothing that hasn't been said before.

I should have walked on by... writer in discussing handling pressure wrote~
While teammates like Evgeni Malkin seemed to wilt under the pressure, Crosby was the best player on the ice during the finals against Detroit. Although he missed six weeks with a high-ankle sprain that cost him a chance to defend his scoring and MVP titles, Crosby still registered 72 points in 53 games. If he stays healthy, there is nothing to suggest he and Ovechkin won't go head-to-head for this season's title. -- S.B.


Pressure existed during the season when Sid was injured. Evgeni needs to set Burnside straight.

The real rivalry could be between Evgeni & AO.

Did Malkin even miss a game last year? He carried the team while Crosby was out, plus he never played that deep into a season before. I'd expect different results this season.

I think based off of what we saw between them last year in the games when Sid was out, there's definitely much more of a rivalry between those two than there is with Sid and AO.
