I don't believe there has ever been a player as strong on the Puck as Crosby. Im sorry but he's just the master at it.

Kinda reminds me of Jonathan Toews, only not as good.

Nope. There are better puck possession players in the NHL today. Crosby is a great player, but don't get ahead of yourself.

Dude, you are way too defensively. You get pulled by your nose like ten times a day at this site. Take the Crosby fanboyism a little less seriously so you can have some fun.


By the way, Jagr was 10x harder to knock off the puck.

Guys come on. You have been ridiculed time after time in this thread. Seriously, take this a little less serious and maybe you can see what people are actually saying.

I feel Forsberg was stronger on the puck and had way more finesse than Crosby. Skill wise, i think its closer than people think. But thats just my opinion.
