Wasn't that my whole point .. It started by me saying Crosby will not hold up to the pounding, and then you supported that aurgument by listing more High profile kids that didn't hold up either ...
I am not sure how you connected that Crosby can hold up to the constant physical contact because Brule can't. I don't understand how that is suppose to change my opinion on Crosby ??
The Q is by far the least physical league and wouldn't Alex Bourret be a better comparison to Brule then Crosby if you want a player comparison ??
These kinds of players often do it to themselves via their own style of hitting and forchecking .. Crosby is usally only on the receiving end of punishment..
What you dont understand is just how strong Crosby is. People look at his 5'10 height and autmatically figure that he is a soft player. Anyone who has every watched him play would be able to tell you he plays like a tank.
You can worry all you want about Crosby not being able to hold up in the NHL but in my opinion you are out to lunch on it. If players like Daniel Briere can last in the NHL Crosby will have no problem. He is gritty, despite being "small"
