Why did Crosby only have 9 points
, was he not a generational talent, should he not have had much more? What about Malkin the next year, he was older, faster, stronger, more talented, still didn't dominate like Tavares. You're trying to say merely because RNH is better, that he will dominate as good if not more than Tavares.
Here? Maybe. On TSN? Not really. Tavares was a shoo-in for MVP, no chance any one else was going to get it.
To the last parts, it doesn't matter other players were better players at the time, doesn't mean they had better tournements. Same reason why it's ignorant to assume RNH will.
Crosby only had 9 points because he was 17 years old. Put Crosby in that tournament at 19 and he breaks every single scoring record.
Malkin put up 10 points, one off the scoring lead. So I'd say he did pretty well.
Your logic is just terribly backwards, you're saying RNH is better, but you don't expect him to be better because "sometimes people don't play their best".
Thats like me saying You're faster than me, but in a race I don't expect you to win because sometimes you dont run your fastest.
