Someone already did the Erat joke, so I have nothing to contribute to this thread.

I vote Crosby because i don't know who this Gretzey guy is.

Seriously though, This is the dumbest poll ever.

1) How can you compare a guy who is still over 1 year away from proving anything at an NHL level, to the greatest player who ever lived??

Gretzky has over 950 more points than second place all-time scorer Mark Messier, considering 1000 pts is enough for most players to go to the HOF that is an unbelievable difference, and enough that noone should truly be able question his position as "the great one." Not until you get close!!

If the poll question was who was better at 16 it would be a fair question.
Crosby, Orr and Gretzky are the greatest 16 year olds of all time and at
least for NA players you can't even make an argument for anyone else.
So not only is it a fair question but it's also a good one so I'll make a new

Also there seems to be this huge love hate thing going on with Crosby
and I'd like to ad my perspective as to why it happens.I'm from the maritimes
so I've been hearing about Crosby since he was 10 and how he was sure to
be the next great player.I scoffed and told people they were crazy and even
until last year I wondered what all the fuss was about.This year I saw him
play a few times live and several times on TV and I,ve also had a chance to
see him practice.I now know what all the fuss is about.You have to see this
kid play to understand how good he is. I've seen him do things I've never seen
before and he does them on regular basis.After watching him you go away
gobsmacked and shaking your head.Orr and Gretzky were great but there
time is past. Crosby is the real deal-enjoy watching him a player like this only
comes along every once in awhile.

I felt a huge need to be different, but I know NO ONE will be as good as Gretzky was.
