I think Crosby is on the right track. He is perhaps not in the league of Gretzky, Lemieux, Orr but if he continues on this track he can become an Yzerman, Sakic type of guy.

As for Henderson in the Summit Series...he played a huge role in that series, not just the series winner.

Henderson
7 goals and 10 points in 8 games
Games winners in Games 6, 7 and 8
Led series in Goals tied with Espo and Yakushev

So while Crosby scored the Golden Goal which will always be remembered and ultimately will go down as a more significant player over the wholes of their respective careers... his role in these Olympic Games was not quite on the same level as what Henderson did in '72...
