Here again, though, I think there's a temptation to overrate Crosby based solely on the "wow" factor. We're talking about a player who's cracked the 50 goal mark ONCE in his career. He's gotten better than 70 assists ONCE in his career. Take a look at someone like, say, Joe Sakic during the DPE: Crosby's seasons where he didn't miss many games his yearly totals aren't much different from Sakic's.
