In Bill Simmons' recent mailbag, he discussed the NBA's great 1-2-3 MVP race between Kobe Bryant, Lebron James and Dwayne Wade. I couldn't help but think of hockey's 1-2-3 MVP race of Ovechkin, Crosby and Malkin. Say what you want about those guys, they deliver. Don't forget that you're witnessing one of the best generations of NHL talent in a long, long time. Sometimes the Internet babble can make you forget what's really important. We're able to watch something great.
The Heatley-Thornton-Lecavalier generation is/was fun and all, but make no mistake about it. We're living in the next golden era.
