“He is overshadowed and I can never understand why,” says Buffalo goalie Ryan Miller, who ranks Malkin among the most dangerous players he has ever faced. “People always seem to just gravitate towards one or two players in a sport. Malkin is like Dwayne Wade this year in the NBA, having an amazing season but everybody just talks about Kobe and LeBron.”
He’s right. Sidney and Ovie have become the NHL’s Kobe and LeBron, at least in terms of popularity and hype.
Ever since they came into the league, “Crosby or Ovechkin?” has been the hockey equivalent of “Ginger or Mary-Anne?” And Either-Or debates don’t usually have a 3rd option (Mrs. Howell?) But you’d better make room for one now.
