Could be. If any young player shows up in big moments, it's Eberle.

I guess we could even put Richards and Giguere ahead of Crosby, given they have their names on that hardware and Sid doesn't.
Uh, or the fact that he was the first player since Lemieux almost 20 years earlier to win both the Art Ross (after coming in 2nd the year before) and the Conn Smythe, and that Conn Smythe was won by putting up more points than any forward ever not named Gretzky or Lemieux.
