crosby.

-unmatched generational centre.
-he's nearly matched ovechkins point total in nearly a season's less games.
-has been able to lead his team to three cups.

Best talent: McDavid (He'll be up there with the all-time greats by the time he's done.)
Best career: Crosby (Can't argue with success.)
Best player: Ovechkin (How fun is it to watch this guy!?)

Best player skill wise sure, but I don't believe that's the case when you factor in more than just skill

Love how the topic about Crosby and Ovechkin immediately broke down into how great McDavid is.

I think they both had their times when they were better than the other, but overall it's probably Crosby. Both players have gotten better over the last 4-5 years, which is crazy at their ages. There's a case to be made for Ovechkin being "better" than Crosby, but they're such different players that it's impossible to compare (and I don't think the argument for Ovi would be very strong). Now that the Caps have won a Cup and I don't have to hear all those "TRADE OVECHKIN" rants from Ken Campbell, I can just watch two great players wind down their careers.

this seems like a poor attempt at being outside the box and spelling mitchell differently

I hope everyone is kidding here. Since when is Ovechkin in the best player debate?

But he's still in the discussion today? For me it's either McDavid or Kucherov.

If Ovechkin keeps getting Richards I think he's absolutely in the best player discussion.

Ovi's consistently the best goalscorer in the league, including today.

But why is the question Crosby or Ovechkin? Have you heard of Connor McDavid?

Crosby and Ovechkin are the two comparables for their generation - a lot like Messi and Ronaldo. They started around the same time and have had a lot of success with their careers. Sure, McDavid is a fantastic player but he's also 10 years younger and hasn't notched the success those two guys have had. It would be like going back to 1993 and answering the question of who is better between Gretzky and Lemieux with Lindros.

So, are we talking about over their careers? Because "best player in the league" sounds like it means best player right now.

It could mean the most accomplished player currently playing in the NHL.
