Maybe Crosby has progressed as a player, but to say that was when he looked "his best" is a definite stretch.

Production/Cups are all I care about.

Higher PPG without Hossa. Cup without Hossa. Just as dangerous without Hossa.
Hossa never played a full season with Crosby, so there is no way to compare any true stats.

He and Hossa took until the second round of the playoffs until they found their chemistry, so you can't base anything off the 12 games of the regular season and point production drops in the playoffs. Anyone who watched those two play together from round two on could see Crosby and Hossa were on another level together.

Trying to say Crosby doesn't work well with creative players has to be one of the most asinine arguments I have ever read on here.

The best player in the world, doesn't work well with creative players...

Ok...

Totally plausible.
