pretty sure you're the only one who keeps saying that. keep trying to make it sound like others are suggesting it.... you might fool someone eventually.

they, and you, can call it whatever you like. the simple fact is that they lost 3 games during that streak... or do you deny that reality too?

they might as well call it the "didn't actually go undefeated since they lost games in overtime but we don't want to upset any homers so we'll call it an unbeaten" streak.

first... yet, injuries happen. and to deny they have an impact is delusional.

second... you calling anyone else a "fanboi" is funny.

Crosby was in the league 8 years... won the Cup 1 of them and was injured 4 of them. so he only "failed" 3 times... as opposed to Toews 4 failures. therefore, a healthy Crosby is much, much more likely to win another Cup.

if by "such things" you are referring to the "best forward" award then you're correct... not very important at all. you can spin this any way you want, for as long as you want... when the history of the 2010 Gold Medal is revisited, it'll be Crosby and the Golden Goal, not Toews' "best forward" award, which will be remembered and celebrated.

wait, is this all part of the hockey world's conspiracy to make it seem like Crosby is better than Toews?! was Miller in on it too? perhaps the entire USA team? will Oliver Stone make a movie about this?

i'm guessing you never actually went back and watched the entire play... probably hurts too much since Toews wasn't even on the ice.

Crosby takes the puck, skates the distance, splits 4 defenders, gets his own rebound, gives to and calls for it back from Iginla & makes the shot.... yeah, what a "soft" play.

but hey, that "best forward" award is some pretty big hardware. i mean, the fact that while an entire nation celebrates Crosby's Golden Goal only you and Toews' remember that award doesn't mean it's not the most important award ever!

i suppose that's why they named Toews' captain of Team Canada for this Olympics...

seriously... now you're just saying stuff that makes no sense.

as someone else has already pointed out, Crosby was still the best seller in 2013. but hey, that's just another indisputable fact which i'm sure you'll find a way to dispute.

facts are hard.
