His 61 power play points in 2006-07 is the highest total since Mario Lemieux in 1995-96. Only Lemieux, Pat Lafontaine, Denis Savard, Adam Oates, Paul Coffey, and Al MacInnis have scored more power play points in a single season. Every one of their seasons came in a year with a higher scoring level than 2006-07.

[Wayne Gretzky's former coach] "Crosby's very similar to Wayne. Same kind of vision. Crosby sees the ice as well as anybody. And I've seen him do amazing things, like Wayne. He went through us and scored a goal that was one of the best I've ever seen. He's feisty, and that's what I like about him too. Wayne was feisty in his way but not like this guy."
