I think he might be refering to the fact that Crosby can't get any credit sitting in the press box. Which is true. You want to really put a stamp of approval on things then play a full season. This is Crosby's 3rd year in a row where he will miss significant time (and maybe the whole season).

parody exists amongst the teams today, and parody amongst the top players exists as well. on any given night, about 6-8 players could have the title "best player", just like any team could.

the days of Orr, Gretzky, and Lemieux are over. they WERE the best players in their era because they were leaps and bounds ahead of the rest. today's "concensus" "best player" hasnt won a scoring title in 5 years LMAO
Well to be fair, you are talking about three of the best ever. Throw in Howe as well. Take those 4. They are the cream of the crop. They WERE the best when they played. The reason we haven't seen their like again is because players like them are so remote. It will happen eventually but it wasn't Crosby, John Tavares and I am willing to be it won't be Nathan MacKinnon either. Someone eventually will stand out.
