There's nothing more you can ask more from a combination of Crosby and Malkin. And yet, Lemieux is hands down better than that hybrid in nearly every single aspect.

It's impossible to overrate someone like that.
Seriously. There's a four way tie for best player of all time. Mario, Wayne, Bobby, Gordie. Anyone saying otherwise is smoking something.
