The other choice was a defenceman and had the most accurate shot on the team.

Gretzky was no longer a goal scorer at that point in his career and I hate to bring up him being bad on breakaways but everyone in hockey knew this.

You can argue that Crawford should have picked Gretzky even though the stats and trends suggest otherwise but that's your perogative. However, to say Crawford shouldn't be considered for the Habs job because of a debatable shootout selection is assinine. Completely assinine.
not to mention it was 11 ****ing years ago lol
