As I try to catch up on almost a week of hockey, I stumbled upon this week's Sports Illustrated and the 'Letters to the Editor' segment. A few Capitals fans had some comments in response to Michael Farber's article "Stimulus Needed" regarding Sidney Crosby and the Penguins' attempt to make the playoffs:
Imagine my shock when I saw your declaration (Stimulus Needed, Feb. 23), in reference to Sidney Crosby, that "the Penguins have the best player in hockey." Had I missed the Washington Capitals' trading Alexander Ovechkin to the Penguins?
Steve Davidson, Washington, D.C.
Crosby is not even the best player on his own team; Evgeni Malkin is.

Great stuff guys. I didn't read Farber's article on Crosby and don't plan on reading any article that starts with: "The Penguins have the best player in hockey."
