Star Gazing...

"Crosby is so far ahead of Ovechkin right now Ovie would need a telescope to see him."

"Crosby has won the Stanley Cup (by going through Ovechkin), the Olympics (again, by going through Ovehckin) and the World Championships."

"I don't believe Crosby ever won a world championship, though he did win a world juniors title. But Ovechkin was part of the Gold-medal winning Russian squad in 2008. So, instead of 3-0, we're now talking about 2-1. Of course, if we're just measuring world titles, Caps winger Jason Chimera seems to have won one in '07."

"Ovie behaved wretchedly during the Games when he shoved the camera of some bordering on out of control."

These are just some of the quotes and topics and blog posts literally FLYING around DC since the Olympics.

I actually have to say I like all this a lot! Ovie behaving the way he did with fans and their cameras is totally irresponsible but everything else is great!

Why, because this just adds to the rivalry. Fuel for the fire. Even more hype for the upcoming playoffs and championship run.

I think it will, hopefully, play into the Caps favor and become a real motivational revenge factor.

Three of the soviet Olympic team members are on the Caps. All three have been around for all the losses to Crosby and what ever team he is on.

And let me just say here, they are both all stars. "Beasts" as I have heard that term used a bit too often lately. Of course each, being one player, do not make a championship team. They help of course, but it takes all the pieces fitting together to make a championship team.

Watching Olympic Hockey was really great this year and I totally enjoyed it, even though the USA team lost in OT.

And now, I can't wait for the playoffs to start. To watch Ovie, Semin, and Varlamov take on you know who and, hopefully, wipe them off the 2010 NHL map!

Oddly enough, Crysby isn't even the best player on his team.

Why the media have latched onto this guy the way they have is absolutely beyond me.

He's whiney. He dives. Without Malkin he's average at best.

The NHL gave he and his Penguins the Stanley Cup on sterling silver platter that matches The Cup itself last year in one of the most horribly officiated playoff series I've ever seen in any sport.

Crysby's winning goal in the Olympics was a fluke...and it appeared to me that he was in the midst of a patented Crysby dive when he got his stick on the puck.

If I were building a team, I take Alexander the Great over Syd the Kid any day of the week.

You know, I have no problem with Canada beating the U.S. in the Olympics...but WHY did it have to be that crybaby that got the game winner??
