It isn't that it doesn't mean anything, it is just that we were robbed of seeing what he could do for a full year. He was on pace for exactly 132 points. That's impressive and would have been a great season possibly giving him a 25 point lead on the next best player. But we're woulda, coulda, shoulda this and that. He missed 41 games for his team and that hurts a player. We have to wait for a minimum until 2013-'14 to see him play a full season. Until then, there are a lot of all-time greats that have had far superior seasons than him and that can include Trottier. If Crosby wants to be in the upper echelon of all-time talent the guy has to play and prove it to us. And yeah, the 25 game point streak was epic, the best I've seen since maybe Lemieux's 46 in 1990.
