Crosby named finalist for Calder Trophy

In case you hadn't heard, Sidney Crosby was named a finalist for the Calder Trophy. I think he's the better player between he and Ovechkin, especially with the way that Sid makes everyone around him better, while still possessing a scoring touch of his own. However, I don't think he'll win the Calder. I think that honor will go to Ovechkin, and probably should, given that Alexander topped the 50 goal plateau in his rookie year.

What will be interesting will be to see if Malkin can take a run at the trophy next year.

You can really make an argumennt for either one, I think they both deserve it. Ovechkin was a better offensive player but Crosby was a better defensive player. Ovechkin was unreal putting the puck in the net and Crosby was great at getting the puck to his open teamates for goals. I mean the fact that both broke a 100 is great, Ovechkin breaking the 50 mark is kinda scary but the fact that Crosby is not too far behind really says something. I mean no one expected him to score 30 let alone almost hitting 40. And 63 assist... ok, I just convinced myself that Crosby should win. Go PENS!
