Both are great players in terms of longevity you go with trottier but crosby has more elite skills which in the end give him a higher ranking.Many Cananadiens never forgave Trootier for playing for the Americans in 84 CanadaCup.Brian was native and chose to play for the Americans.Previously Brian played for canada.Brian was a physical two way player who was a good passer and gave his best.He rarely missed games even though he played a robost game.He put up 100 pts seasons and was great in playoffs.He potvin and Bossy were major players on the team.Different publications have one or the other ahead on lists
Who had/will have the better career likely Trottier.
Who's the better player...Crosby
I just don't get as excited or see the same thing when it comes to Trottier's games that are online. By that logic though I could say that Pavel Bure was the better player and that probably isn't true but you get my point.
I'm a slightly older Pens fan, and not much into Crosby, but it's still Crosby by a pretty wide margin. However, Trottier doesn't get his due much on here. Everyone talks about Bossy and Potvin, when he was just as or more important for the Isles.
What's the next poll going to be? Rick Vaive vs Stamkos?
