Youngest player to record 200 career points (19 years and 207 days)
Youngest player to record 2 consecutive 100 point seasons (19 years, 215 days).
Youngest player voted to the starting lineup in an All-Star Game
Youngest Art Ross Trophy and Lester B. Pearson Award winner
Youngest player to be named to the First All-Star Team
So if we take away all the bells and whistles (the "youngest" BS)...
2x100 point seasons (when scoring was higher!)
Art Ross Trophy
1st Team All-Star
That's fine. I'm not saying they're the same player. I'm saying you're overreacting.
In fact, I'll do one better: compare "first two years of relevance"
Crosby: 6th, 1st in points
Giroux: 11th, 3rd
Crosby: 7th, 2nd in Assists
Giroux: 8th, 2nd
Crosby: 1st team all-star
Giroux: "3rd team" all-star
The only big thing Crosby has over Giroux are, of course, his awards, though Giroux has a 4th in Hart, a 3rd in Art Ross, and who knows what in the Linsday (probably a top 5). Other than that, they aren't far off, but no, I know Crosby's better.
