Oates would put up sick numbers, and make his winger some kind of hero to his hometown fans, but he's not the best Crosby comparison.
That would be early-career Steve Yzerman. Crosby plays the same kind of game, and like Yzerman is an excellent playmaker with good goal scoring skills and high point output.
One major difference? Yzerman used his slapshot a great deal more than Crosby. Although that could also have been a result of the differences in goaltending style/quality across the eras.
