Ovechkin or Crosby??

With the 2004 NHL entry draft on Saturday, you really have to wonder who would you rather have? The next Kovalchuk or the next Gretzky?With the 2004 NHL entry draft on Saturday, you really have to wonder who would you rather have? The next Kovalchuk or the next Gretzky? Without a doubt Sidney Crosby, who is playing for the Rimouski Oceanic of the QMJHL will the the top pick in 2005. While the is the year of Alexander Ovechkin. Both players bring alot to the table, but I want to know who would you pick? Lets check it out

ALEXANDER OVECHKIN:

Played for Dynamo Moscow in Russia for 2 years. He was the leading scorer on a bad team. Great hands, size and speed. Shot that rivals Kovalchuk. He will the 1st overall pick in this years draft after getting some pressure from Evgeny Malkin. Named to Russia’s world cup roster. Can step in immeaditly and help any team. The total Package to some scouts

SIDNEY CROSBY:

Played for the Rimouski Oceanic of the QMJHL and posted a league record 135 points, the most ever by a rookie in the QMJHL. Gretzky said he is the only one who can break his records. Questionable size. Uncanny vision and hands. Scored 73 goals and 98 assists at a prep school in Michigan 2 years ago. THE #1 pick next year. Has his own webiste and special feature section on tsn.ca called “The Crosby Show.” Scored a goal from behind the net, with the puck on his elevated stick. Sickest goal ever.

So who would you rather have?
