This.

You can't compare Crosby to the greats of the past just on his hockey merits in this instance because Crosby is probably the FIRST North American face of NHL in this 'web 2.0' era. Influence wise, Crosby is one of the greatest since Gretzky.

Hockey merit wise, he's borderline in. The Hart and the Cup are the key drivers, while having 4.5 solid seasons should provide enough longevity.
