That's starting with Lindros' second season, but also only giving him credit for actual games in '95, and it's about as close as you can get.
As Phil says, we aren't penalizing Crosby for games missed due to injury, but we can't give him too much extra credit for those missed games either. I mean, saying he was at a dominant level in '10 & '11 isn't much of a stretch... but including '12 (only 22 games after already missing half of '11) and the current lockout is going too far. If he wants ANY credit for this season, then he should be playing in one of the top leagues available... whether that's the NHL, KHL, or even the Swiss league... at least prove he can stay healthy for N games and dominate a bunch of yodelers.
To be fair though insurance costs prevent him from playing anywhere in the lockout.
