How about you guys drop the other glove and make it interesting
Do they hate each other? I don't know, they might, but we just don't know. Will they scrap or drop the gloves one of these times? Again, I have no idea, but how great is the intrigue of one of them finally getting on the others' nerves just enough that it results in an Ovi/Sid fight?
Since I don't really count on that happening (I know, right), let's have some fun and go to the matchup of Ovi and Sid.
Tale of the Tape
Crosby: 5'11", 200 pounds
Has fought previously, famously asking Bruin tough-guy (cough) Marc Savard to dance, even going so far to remove his visor to accommodate Savard to no avail. In his most recent bout, he absolutely obliterated the Dallas Stars' Matt Niskanen.
Ovechkin: 6'2", 233 pounds
The burly Russian might be in a different weight class than Canada's Golden Boy, but the two have had their disagreements in the past. He has dropped the gloves a few times as well, taking on Lightning super-pest Steve Downie and most recently Brandon Dubinsky of the Rangers. Dubs gave him quite the beating, but clearly with a frustrated Ovi.
The more likely fight would probably be Pens tough-guy Eric Goddard and the Caps' resident puncher D.J. King, who otherwise serves no purpose. Another option may be Ovi verus Max Talbot, who has made no bones about his dislike for the Great Eight.
Who wins in a Fight, Sid or Ovi?
You tell me. I'll take the size of Ovechkin. Guy has a serious mean streak—just ask the mangled body of Blackhawk Brian Campbell.
