How about Ovechkin's lead in assists? A winger makes more assists than a center? Since when? I think it's much more surprising. And Ovi missed 8 games, Sid wouldn't be close. Ovi has the best goals and points per game totals in the league. (see below)
Obviously Crosby has surprised everyone this season. Sid the Kid doesn't even have a decent wrist shot and his slap shot is probably the worst in the league as well. But, hey, he goes and scores garbage goals, good for him. But comparing Crosby to Ovechkin is like comparing a vulture to an eagle.
Wikipedia on Vultures are scavengers, feeding mostly on the carcasses of dead animals. Vultures do not use their feet to kill their prey (the definition of a Raptor) and so have gone back and forth between being classified as a raptor or a non-raptor, and have gone through extensive DNA testing to test the relationships.hehe
Wikipedia on Eagles are large birds of prey... Eagles are differentiated from many other birds of prey mainly by their larger size, more powerful build, and heavier head and beak. Most eagles are larger than any other raptors apart from the vultures.
