72 points in 56 games as a 15 year old. Another 7 points in 6 PO games.
93 points in 56 games as a 16 year old. Another 6 points in 6 PO games.
94 points in 47 games as a 17 year old. Another 28 points in 17 PO games as well as scoring a whopping 36 points in just 12 games in that version of the M-Cup that year.
So while I agree Potvin was incredible, Orr was just ridiculous!
As for the poll...Lemieux looked like a man amongst boys in Junior, it was sick.
Crosby didn't come close to dominating on that kind of level.
This was posted in the contraction thread but I think it definitely applies here too. The level of play from the non-stars of hockey has drastically improved... I don't think it's incorrect to state Crosby was playing against far better talent in junior than Lemieux was.
