I can't believe there are people actually comparing Crosby to Jagr.

Aside from Wayne and Mario (obviously) Jagr was THE most dominant player, on his own level, for a large period of time, and noone - came close to him.

And for all his defensive shortcomings, people who didn't see him in his prime, simply don't understand this guy was skilled, strong AND fast, and his puck possession game might just be the best in the history.
He piled up a huge +/- because his teams scored more than the opposition, and his way of playing defense was to take that puck and spend a huge chuck of time in the offensive zone.

Crosby, man... Crosby doesn't even come close to that level of dominance.
Not Crosby, not Ovechkin, not Malkin.
