There's nothing unrealistic in thinking he could have Mark Recchi's career arc, he was, after all, a player that actually existed. And there were others like him. Jagr is like him... and might have had a shot at 2000 if he stuck around for his KHL years. Would this be difficult for Crosby? Of course, very. Unlikely? Naturally.
Fair enough. Crosby is one of the few players who actually is in the conversation of hitting 2000 points if healthy.
I don't see durability as the only criteria here. Players tend to over/underachieve in different seasons. Even if Crosby is capable of hitting 100 does not mean he is going to. Even if he is healthy.
But you have a good point. If Crosby would/could have been healthy he is a legit threat for 2000.
