Reality check.


And "90% of all players out there" is total exaggeration.
I have seen absolutely nothing on the defensive side of thing to put him up with a Lindros or a Forsberg or even a Sakic.

Seriously, the "new" Kovalchuk plays a sounder defensive game than Crosby does. No joke, he was damned impressive defensively last spring.
Crosby and his Pens were absolutely and most definitely not!
There is no doubt that Sid is alot better than Wayne was at the two way game, we have plenty of regular season statistical evidence to see that (as well for those that are old enough the eye test as well).

Wayne at his peak with the Oilers played a ":we will simply outscore you style of hockey and we don't care how many goals we give up" style.

None of the "Wayne would score 150 plus easy crowd" has addressed how the current NHL would tolerate that type of play, as the goal of all teams is to win right?
