Sidney Crosby should not be MVP

I am not a fan of someone losing their spot, whether it be a roster spot or trophy spot, to an injury. I just want to get that out there before I say anything else because I know that is one of the main arguments for those who think that Crosby should be MVP. My objection to Crosby getting the MVP player award is that his team has barely dipped in his absence. In fact, they were playing without Malkin, Letang, Neal, and Crosby and they kept doing fairly well. A Most Valuable Player should be a player that is the most valuable player to their team. A player that the team would crumble without. If we just want to make the MVP the one who has the most points, then why differentiate between that guy and the Art Ross trophy winner? I have heard so many people saying that he should win this year, but his team has proven that they can win in his absence, so how can he be considered "most valuable"? I would suggest maybe Ovechkin, whose ressurgence has brought the Caps back to life (and to the playoffs), or Tavares, because what would the Islanders be without him?
