Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Eric Duhatschek of the Glob and Mail,
...the annual deliberation between who might be the league’s dominant player, Alex Ovechkin or Sidney Crosby, seems even more heavily tilted in favour of the latter at the moment.
It isn’t just because Crosby is captain of the defending champions, or the player that scored the winning goal in overtime to clinch gold for Canada in the 2010 Olympics. Those are compelling arguments on his side of the ledger.
But Crosby is also the first of the two archrivals to understand that greatness cannot be a singular pursuit in a team sport; and what ultimately forges a player’s legacy is his ability to channel his own personal skills into larger team successes.
