    What kind of numbers did players like Sidney Crosby put up as kids? What did they play like and look like in youth hockey?

    I know that when Crosby led his midget AAA team to a cup as a 14 year old, he had 18 pts in 5 games.

    when i played youth hockey in Buffalo I remember Kane putting up godly numbers every year. Doubling the 2nd leading scorer usually.

    And 130+ points in a 28 game regular season too if IIRC. Meanwhile the norm for a high scorer in the NS Major Midget league is usually 70-90 pts and 4 years older than Crosby was.

    For comparison sake I believe Jon Sim put up about 60 pts as a 16-year-old, in the same league. As for what Crosby looked like....well...like a little kid who hadn't hit puberty yet, embarassing the pants off everyone else.

    I think the phenoms (Crosby, Ovechkin, Lemieux, Gretzky, Orr, etc) were usually the leading scorers in their leagues by incredible margins (2x, 3x the scond leading scorer) while being quite a few years younger and smaller than their competition.

    House leagues, especially in the Spring, will have one or two travel players who can absolutely dominate. Bring their team back from a three goal deficit in 10 seconds with three end-to-end rushes. It's like that except, the kid is six years old and 3 feet tall playing against ten year olds that are four feet tall.

    Gotta be the best junior season of all time, just unreal.

    I remember Crosby destroying the Telus Cup as well, I knew a couple guys that played on the Red Deer team that made the Cup that year, they pretty much convinced me he would be the best player in the NHL one day, and it seems they got that one right.
