People always try to lump Crosby in with Lemieux and Gretzky for greatness and feats when they really shouldn't. It does a disservice to all because to me all the forwards that Sid has a chance of equaling or bettering the careers of are names like Forsberg, Lindros, Jagr, Selanne, Jagr, Sakic, Yzerman, Messier, Trottier, Lafleur, Mikita. Crosby is more of a Marcel Dionne or Jean Beliveau level talent but not a GOAT type... not yet at least. As great as Sid has been, even Gordie Howe dominated the league more than he has so far (but it should be pointed out that Howe didn't get that way until 23 whereas Crosby had already won it all by 23).
