Lemieux got 96 points in 64 gp for 1.5p/g
Daigle got 110 points in 66 gp for 1.67p/g
Cleary got 81 points in 62 gp for 1.3p/g
Gretzky got 112 points in 64 gp for 1.75p/g
So far Crosby is smoking them
Lindros had 36 pts in 25 games for 1.4 p/g and if you average it over a 66 game season back then he would've finished with around 95 pts on the year.
PM Bouchard had 95 pts in 67 games for 1.42 p/g only 3 seasons ago. He would probably be the closest comparison to Crosby's current season.
Crosby's numbers are for sure impressive, but it should be tough for the kid to keep up this pace.
For a normal kid, sure. But for Crosby? I think he can/will keep up the pace. He's so amazing. I think we didn't have seen his best for THIS season. 140 points, imo. If I was Rimouski's coach he would try to move Pouliot to the wing and to play him with Crosby. That would be a killer line and could be a scoring threat for Canada in this winter WJC.
