The only # that would point in that direction is games played.

Crosby has better #'s across the board in ever other category. p/g...a/g...g/g...+/-...

I sure hope so cause he's injured an extraordinary amount of time..you know the next hit to the head he's a vegetable.

Any hit can end any players career at anytime.

That part of the risk every player excepts when they enter the ice.

When healthy it's Sid. Geno,while great, tends to be a streaky player. Even more so when Sid is healthy for some reason.
Your injury concerns are valid. I just hope the way the Penguins organization handled his injury versus others in the past will let him have a long career. But the truth is nobody knows. Only time will tell.

They're both most valuable but, in different ways.
