However, Crosby is younger, the captain, the face of the franchise (and debatably the league) and has proven thus far to be the better playoff performer.

I think they seem to be stubbornly wanting to keep both, for better or for worse.

No debate anymore. He may be the face of Tim Horton's, Gatorade, Nike, whatever, but AO is the new face of the league.

I want the player who I think will make the biggest impact on and off the ice. Crosby has not been making much of an impact, He has been hurting since last seasons ankle injury and has not been the same since. Malkin on the other hand has shown us that he can step up with or without Crosby... I'd go for Malkin.

The only thing Crosby has on Malkin is Marketability. But that will wear off.

60 points in 47 games isn't exactly garbage.

So does that mean you would take Malkin over Crosby? scratch

If you're the Pittsburgh Penguins, Crosby is your guy.

He's the more marketed one, already the captain, a year younger than Geno and has been far better in the playoffs. Granted Crosby's playoff numbers aren't that much better than Malkin's (32 points, +7 in 25 games vs. 26 points, +2 in 25 games) but he was far better the first year against Ottawa and also in the Finals against Detroit.

However, the Pens are trying to market Geno alongside Crosby, but that's not because they're trying to replace #87.

This isn't really anything more than a hypothetical situation because the Pens aren't at all interested in dealing either.

However, I do believe that if they were forced at gun-point do choose one, Crosby would be their guy.

Astonishing stat:

These two have combined for 2 game-winning goals all season.

Jason Spezza has 3, and that's on a much worse team.
