Its hard to say. He'll be 26 at the start of the 2013-'14 season. The NHL and the NHLPA are knobs, but even they can't screw up the season not starting on time - next year.
I think he never played better than 2009-'10 and of course the first half of the 2010-'11 season. He technically peaked at 120 points, but I get the feeling this won't be his career high. He was on pace for 132 points in 2011 until he got hurt. It's really hard to say because he has had a Lindrosesque type of career where you can't trust him putting together a full season (4 out of 7 seasons have been drastically cut short).
With a healthy 80 or so games then who knows, he may just get 120. There is just so much uncertainty around the NHL and Crosby himself. When do they drop the puck again? Will he get hurt? Can he comeback as the same player from before despite losing the better part of three full seasons? Lots of questions and no one knows. He is losing out on a full season of his prime right now, you can never get that back and he isn't getting any younger.
