Well actually a 1.35 ppg in this era is pretty much legendary-tier

But my point is that the eyetest shows that this Crosby IS better than the Crosby pre-injury. So it's not surprising that his best PPG seasons came recently. This is a better, smarter, more efficient player. So while Rhiessan was being sarcastic with his comment, he really needn't be. It IS a coincidence, not some sort of weird anomaly, though I understand why people believe it might be. I think his PPG would be as likely to go UP as it would be down (his history in long seasons at least suggests that), but I'm not really getting into that here.
