Crosby may be generational but Lemieux is an all timer, surpassed only by Gretzky in dominance as a forward. I honestly think a first line of Clark-Lemieux would outproduce a line of Crosby-Ovechkin.
The thing is that with Lemieux, his line will most likely outproduce any line that does not include Gretzky.
Those two utilized their teammates in a way i have never seen before. Especially Gretzky.
