Any breakdown as to when points were scored? 1st period, 2nd period, 3rd period, OT?
It does not cease to amaze me when people do not understand the difference between team achievements and individual achievements....flabbergasted really.
Then again, a sizable group of people do reside near the left tail end of the IQ bell curve...
Dude this was just in response to point totals. Crosby missed a lot of games in his prime which luckily McDavid hasn't. So McDavid will mostly likely end up with more career games and points. People jump in without context haha. I was responding to a guy who said Crosby wouldn't end up close to McDavid in the end which is just dumb lol.
Individual achievements without team achievements are ultimately futile.
I do not give a shit about the Oilers or any other NHL team. In addition, I do not give a shit about any other club team in any league. Never have.
No, they are not. They are a different breed. Not to be mixed, though.
When you're the captain they inevitably are mixed, and define the legacy.
That's totally flawed thinking. Captain or not, it's still just one player. During a season, a team will typically need around 30 players, due to injuries and other absences.
it’s called robust
both saw career numbers playing alongside Mcdavid
Its easier to be Robust when you have extra long offseason often
Ha anyways I am agreeing that McDavid will probably have better total numbers. I just dont think numbers only will be a good comparisons for the careers.
I agree, total points is secondary. Keep in mind, there is no way to have a fair comparison. Such things are in the area of fandom opinion.
Nice try. Team game. McDavid is not the GM
Watch the highlights of the 7-1 game against the Flames. You will join the love fest.
Contradiction is it not?
One thing I do find interesting is how much Edmonton plays down there lineup in these discussions.
They don't like hearing about Crosby cup finals back to back with winning one of them.
Is it Possible Malkin and Crosby were just further ahead then everyone than McDavid and Draisaitl currently are?
Malkin went Beast mode and Crosby also elevated play to carry the penguins to a cup win.
I don't think are lineup was that special.
Gonchar late in his career was still great but I wouldn't call him the #1 caliber anymore still top pairing. This was also Letang when he was a solid #4.
Jordan Staal was great though.
I hear great things about Klefbom and I feel Nurse has been shoved down hfboard throats.
I also hear RNH is an incredible winger that may be commanding 8 million next contract (let's see what covid does it may lower)
So which is it?
All these players on Edmonton are bad or that McDavid and Draisaitl right now aren't at that stage of there careers where they can carry a team like Malkin and Crosby?
How many 5 point games does it take to qualify your name on the Stanley Cup?
0 for Ben Eager
How do you define offense? Because Crosby was superior at generating offense in his prime. Awards? Crosby missed out on scoring titles due to injury in 2008, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2015.
Yes! I remember when he led the Blackhawks to a Stanley Cup! They wouldn't have won it without him!
Acting like you had no choice but to complain about the "love" the best hockey player on the planet gets on a hockey forum.
And soon McDavid will be 25, and at that age Tomas Holmström had been to two finals, winning both.
Maybe Crosby and McDavid will get to 4 cups like Tomas at some point, but until then we know who's the greatest.
You must really be an enjoyable type.
A witty comment you took exception of. Those are the worst.
What skills? Edgework? Backhand? Passing? Shot? Board work? Hand-eye? I get that Crosby’s peak was 10 years ago now but sheesh.
That would make him an outlier. Crosby, Malkin and Ovechkin all hit their peaks 22-25.
No he wasn't.
Being so injury prone and missing so much hockey is an argument against Sid, not for him. Sorry, but you don't get any credit for things you didn't do.
