Strange that ESPN would include shootouts goals....

That makes a little more sense. Crosby improved his team's offense by 38%....which is getting very close to the Lemieux area. Moreover, this means that if Crosby had been out the full year, Pittsburgh would have had around 185 goals for the entire year, which would make them second-worst in the league...I could definitely see that, considering the quality of forwards they had outside of Crosby and Malkin...

Again, however, Lemieux was 35, not in his prime like Crosby. Though the injury excuse has to be a wash...
