Well guess what, ole Dmitry is at it again, this time with Sergei Kostitsyn.
GLORIOUS! Sergei not only mentions Kane again, just like Semin, but he riles up the Crosby debate, just like Semin. This could be a Mother Russia thing or maybe not, either way, it's funny.
D - Who, in your opinion, is the most talented player in the NHL?
S - Do you want me to name just one? Or a couple?
D - Whatever you want.
S - I think of the young players it is Patrick Kane [of the Chicago Blackhawks]. He was the first in fan voting for the All Star game in the Western Conference. I played with him in the past when we were in the juniors. And we're actually about to have dinner with him right now.
D - And who is the most overhyped player?
S - It is probably Crosby, just like everyone says, just like Semin said recently. It is true that [he gets] a lot of attention. If you ask me, I think Semin and Ovechkin play much better than Crosby.
D - But you have to agree that Sidney Crosby is a great player with great skill. It's not for nothing he is considered one of the best players.
S - Yes, he is very technically skilled. But Semin, Ovechkin, Kovalchuk, Malkin are more technically skilled. And it's not because they are Russian, it's just my opinion.
It'll also be funny to see the overreaction from Pensblog, whom will certainly call Kostitsyn a joke, proceed to say why Crosby is better than he is (he is), and say WOOOOO at the end. It's gonna be awesome.
