He topped off at 1.50 PPG and 120 Pts in a full season and outside of a few small stretches in his career (a notion that was completely overhyped since CzechYourMath already showed (in the By the Numbers section) that Crosby's half season in 2010-11 isn't even among the top 5 half seasons among non Gretzky players. Both Lemieux and Jagr have enjoyed much better half seasons than Crosby ever did.

If he scores more than 110 Pts in a full season, I would gladly eat my words. The jury is still out.

Crosby isn't as good as Lemieux or Jagr. Its foolish to think he's at their level.

But he certainly has the potential to be the best post-Jagr forward.

He has the best 18 year old season ever and the second best (after Gretzky) 19 year old season. The kid is good.
