Stop what already? Showing just how overrated Crosby and Forsberg are?

Jagr was a better playmaker than both. Crosby's APG means nothing to me since he's only played 434 games over 7 seasons which is an average of 62 games with only 63 games played over his last 2 seasons.

If you want to start talking their first 7 seasons, then let's do it.

Jagr's first 7 seasons are 1990-91 to 1997-98, Jagr had 2 Art Ross trophies, a 2nd place finish in scoring, a 5th place finish (2nd in PPG) 2 overall Hart finalist finishes and another 4th place finish and most importantly 2 Stanley Cups.

In Crosby's first 7 seasons, he has 1 Art Ross, 2 3rd place finishes a 6th place, 1 Hart, 1 Perason, another time where he was a Hart finalist, 1 Richard and 1 Stanley Cup.

For all of his head start, Crosby is really not that much ahead of Jagr all things considered in their first 7 seasons.

BTW it was what Jagr did between his 8th and 11th seasons that really distanced him from the rest of the pack. Let's see what Crosby does in the next 3-5 seasons.
