Exactly...and it's something that needs to be recognized. Marleau currently has 9 goals/14 points in 7 games while Crosby has 3 goals/7 points in 7 games. Lets say they both finish the season with 25 goals/50 points. How do you ignore that while they both finished with the same numbers, outside of the first 2 weeks of the season, Crosby was better? He's the player you would want. Seguin had a 2-3 week period where he had 10 goals/15 points in 9 games and Hall still finished with a higher GPG and PPG averages. I'm not even saying Hall blows Seguin away. I've watched a lot of Bruins games. I almost always come away impressed...I just don't get how it seems to be so unanimous outside of Edmonton that Seguin is easily the better player. Even TSN projected Seguin to finish 12th in points while Hall was all the way at 63rd and no where near a point per game.
