It's not at all the same as being injured, especially since his abrasive style of play likely contributed to his injuries.
Other than a freak concussion, Crosby only missed a significant amount of games once.

I doubt that anyone is going to have Crosby ahead of Trottier on an all time list if they've put thought into it, but asking who is better is different. Injuries can impact how valuable you are, but it doesn't really change how good you are unless the injuries are clearly the fault of the player.
