Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin ?

The Olympics are going to be here before you know it.  We here at PenguinPoop have a question for you. If Evgeni Malkin’s team takes on Sidney Crosby’s team, which team will you be rooting for to win the game?

pp0154There are many things to take into consideration before just throwing your vote in. On Sidney Crosby’s side you have Marc-Andre Fleury, but on Evgeni Malkin’s side you have Sergei Gonchar and also a guy who spent his entire NHL career in Pittsburgh, Aleksey Morozov.

Then there is the dark side. Do you root against Malkin’s team because the new captain of the Washington Capitals Alexander Ovechkin is on it? If your doing that then don’t forget that Crosby’s team has the Philadelphia Flyers captain Mike Richards on it, and possibly New Jersey Devils Martin Brodeur in net instead of Fleury.

While I will be rooting for all of the Penguin Players and Pittsburgh native Ryan Malone in the Olympics even when they are competing against each other, the hardest time to root for them will be when Fleury is in net, then I will really have to pick sides. So far the only game scheduled that has Penguin facing Penguin is on February 21st at 4:40 PM when Brooks Orpik and the USA team takes on Crosby & Fleury’s Canada squad. The other meetings will have to take place in the quarterfinals or medal games.

    I honestly think that evgeni malkin should be the captain of the pittsburgh penguins because he is a very reliable player and has good sportsmanship and will never let his team down. while crosby on the other hand is always having his good an bad days mostly bad in the series with montreal he got 1 point 1! thats just humiliating. malkin always gets the most amount of pints in the playoffs thats why i think malkin should be the captain and not an alternet

    Isn’t rooting for Russia a little bit like rooting for the Flyers.

    As good as the Olympic hockey is the NHL is right about thinking about stopping the participation. Some of these players are just going through the motions (HINT: MALKIN) It’s just not on the Penguins if anyone was tuned into Kovalchuk’s performance the other night.
    One of the choices in the poll should have been– neither team.
