Let's take a closer look at that team.

Sid leads the team in scoring despite playing in exactly half of the teams games with 41.

Letang's (age 23) 50 points in 82 games is 16 behind Sid.

Kunitz (Crosby's line mate) has 48 in 66 games.

Malkin is out close to half the year.

There is little doubt that if Sid doesn't get concussed that his season would ahve been spectacular in historical terms and absolute ones as well.
It's still only a half season though which according to you in both past Lemeiux '01 arguments and as recently as a post by you about Coffey and I quote "I only give credit for what players did do, not what they could do" seems like you're jumping the gun a bit and being just a tad hypocritical, no?
