Haha Eugene is the english translation of Evgeni (I thought i was being clever). Also I agree Cros is a "smarter" player, he sees the ice very well, but Malkin is more naturally gifted and a better goal scorer.

Pavel Bure in today's game...sigh...lots of these:

I love Bure as much as the next guy, but you do understand why he didn't play in 95-96? It was selfish and classless. I grew up as a kid loving Bure too but that was terrible.

Sorry, lol, got the stats mixed up. I meant the 98-99 season, where he held out for half of the season because he didn't want to play for the Canucks anymore. Truly unprofessional.

He was a remarkable player tho.

I hear ya, but that's sports for ya.

I never really was able to find his exact reasoning for why he left explained by himself, but from what I can find to read, it appears as though there were a few variables: 1) He did not get along with Keenan; 2) Keenan had traded Bure's closest friend on the team (Odjick) before Burke took over as GM; 3) The Cannucks finished another season in the basement (this I'm not sure how relevant it is considering he didn't have a problem going to Florida...); 4) Vancouver wanted to go through a rebuilding phase, and although Burke had said money wasn't an issue, it would probably be difficult to convince the 27-year old to wait around to rebuild, not to mention difficult to rebuild with a player like Bure commanding close to 10m; 5) Purely speculation but Miami has always been a hotspot for Mafia-related activity and Bure had blatant connections to the Russian Mafia... "Bure sat out despite being scheduled to make $8 million US citing reasons such as not enough privacy in a small, Canadian market, a variety of disputes with management and a desire to play with a winning team."

I was upset when Jagr wanted out of town, but I understood fully why he wanted to leave. Penguins fans still have haste towards him, and I'll never understand that. His name should be on a jersey hanging from the rafters, not thrown in the dirt just because he needed a move in his career; IMO that's part of the profession (then again so is being loved and hated). Jagr didn't sit out like Bure did, but Pittsburgh also catered to Jarg's request. Bure had requested a trade as early as the 95-96 season, and wasn't granted it until he held out in 98. Funny thing is as soon as Vancouver brought in some top-name talent (Alex Mogilny) Bure had begun his requests out of town. Bure played on that classic line with Mogilny and Fedorov in the past, and probably didn't like anyone stealing his thunder, especially a fellow Russian. But that's Bure for you. He was a selfish player, didn't really care for his teammates, and didn't utilize the skill of passing, but damn if didn't make you love watching hockey games. After seeing him score that OT goal against Calgary in game 7 (after tailing 3-1 in the series) I can't fathom being from Vancouver and hating the guy.

Comparing what a center does to a winger on defense is ridiculous. Center acts as a third defenceman clearing out the front, grinding in the corners, starting breakouts. Centers have to be able to do it all. Although for some reason I always found playing a wing harder.

Who would I want on my team right now? Ovechkin no questions asked. Who would I want to build my team around... Crosby.

Zetterberg imo, is the best player in the league, probably the most underrated athlete in sports today. Now he can do it all, and he proved it last year in the playoffs.
