Generational talentS and great supporting cast for both lemieux/jagr & crosby/malkin. Along with cups for both (i wish my team had a cup)
You will be able to compare crosby to selanne and lemieux when he retires. Next year he will be compared to lupul and and all the other players who came back from injury. This kid is too young to just hang em up. He can sit out and heal for however long it takes. Hes a lemieux, not savard
Yes because back problems and concussions are the same thing.
Savard and Crosby have a lot more in common in the size factor than Crosby has in common with Lemieux.
Lemieux was 6'4 and 215-235 lbs.
Crosby is 5'11 and 205 lbs. You tell me who was better equipped to survive from bad injuries and still manage to muscle his way through big opponents?
Not one single player in the history of the NHL has ever come back from a concussion as severe as Crosby's and played at the same level as pre-concussion.
