As a 16 year old... Mario Lemieux: 64 GP, 30 G, 66 A, 96 pts. Sidney Crosby: 29 GP, 27 G, 40 A, 67 pts. Mario at 17: 66 GP, 84 G, 100 A, 184 pts. Mario at 18: 70 GP, 133 G, 149 A, 282 pts. I'd be shocked to see him do what Mario did in his next two years though. If he does, more power to him. Anyone think he can beat Mario's numbers as a 17- and 18-year old in this day of more defensively responsible hockey? Also, to those who get to see Sidney play... does everyone feed him the puck all the time the way the Penguins do for Mario, or is he really earning every point on pure talent? Not that Mario doesn't earn his, it's just that it's easier to score points when people are always looking to pass to you.
