Lemieux vs Combination of Crosby and Malkin

Inspired by a thread in the Penguins forum. This is purely hypothetical of course. Who would be the better player: a peak Lemieux or a player that had the best attributes of Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin?

Lemieux vs Evgeni Crosby? If it's the absolute best attributes of both Crosby and Malkin, then it's them AINEC.

Lemieux. What attributes are either Crosby or Malkin better than Lemieux at? It's not like you just add their point totals together or anything.

People are really letting nostalgia take over. Lemieux is obviously one of the greatest forwards ever and better than both Crosby and Malkin (individually), but I'll take 2 superstar forwards over 1.

Crosby & Malkin AINEC.

It's the best attributes of both. It's still one forward.

Mario still had the ability to make everything look really really easy in a way Malkin and Crosby don't. I think that gives the edge to Lemieux.

I will take Lemieux.

It would be different if we had Crosby + Chara poll.

Agreed, I think people are failing to understand the poll question. Even if you take the best attributes from each, Lemieux is still better. He was bigger & stronger and had better vision, hands, passing and shooting ability than either Crosby or Malkin do now.

I think they'd be pretty much even, but i'm kinda edging towards Lemieux.

Crosby+Ovechkin would make for a far more interesting poll.

What attributes could Crosby and Malkin possibly possess that Mario couldn't do better?

Crosbys ability to make weaker areas of his game better then most players in the league in those areas, such as goal scoring and faceoffs. I would argue Crosby is better defensively, has a better backhand, and has more explosive acceleration.

see, therein lies the difference. lemieux never had weak areas like "goal scoring" and "faceoffs".

Wrong and wrong on the boldest. Crosby has better vision and is a better passer.
