Sedin cyborg vs Sidney Crosby. Who's better?

A crazy hockey playing Sedin Cyborg named Danrik, which is obviously consisting of both Sedins. Strengths and Weaknesses of both brothers.

Or...

Sidney Crosby?

Homer vote Danrik. Daniel's sniping + Henrik's playmaking in one player would be ridiculous.

Crosby.

With double the dive, the cyborg would never stand up long enough to contribute anything.

Combining the Sedins together doesn't mean you get 40 goals and 80 assists. They feed off of each other, and if you take that away, you're going to lose offense.

Would Danrick play on a line with the Sedins?

Why would you even combine them lol, at the top of their games they could probably get 200 points on a line, as one player they'd get what 110-120?

And:

Daniel's career shooting percentage: 12.6
Sidney's career shooting percentage: 15.1


Also, the Sedin's have some of the most inflated offensive stats of any stars in the league due to the way their coach uses them. Well over 70% of the faceoffs the Sedin's have been on the ice for over the past two seasons have been in the offensive zone. (In fact, it was close to 80% for both Sedin's this past season.)

Danrik would be twice as fast, never get injured and score 200 pts a season. Dude wouldn't give the puck up either, no defense required.

People seem to think Danrick would score as much as both Sedins combined. This is incorrect, he wouldn't play as much as both combined. He'd combined their best traits.

Henrik and Crosby are pretty equal in terms of playmaking. Hell, Crosby might even be better, I believe he doesn't rack up as many assists simply because he scores more goals.

Crosby is a better sniper than Daniel Sedin.

The answer is Crosby.

The Sedins are combined, not their production.

The problem here is that Henrik and Daniel share some of the same weaknesses in areas which Crosby excels in (lack of speed and below-average skating ability, less natural athleticism (strength, balance, reflexes, hand-eye coordination, agility & explosiveness), at times a low level of intensity & drive to win, etc).

So even though a Sedin-Sedin combo would be better than they are individually, really they wouldn't improve drastically. I posted the same poll a while back comparing Crosby to a Tavares-Duchene fusion and I think it's more fair because what Tavares lacks in stick skills, athleticism and skating, Duchene has. And what Duchene lacks in hockey IQ, playmaking etc, Tavares has.

The Sedin combo is basically a slower, softer Crosby. The Sedins are already really similar, this hypothetical is basically just Henrik with a better shot, who looks to score a bit more and pass a bit less. The hybrid still can't skate like Crosby, it's not as tough as Crosby, its hands aren't quite as quick as Crosby's, and vision/playmaking is a wash. I take Crosby.

Cyborg technology is being used to create this hockey demigod. Such a player would never get tired and stay on the ice 100% of the time. 300 points is more likely.
