Is Sidney Crosby as good as Lemieux and Gretzky?

Sidney is only in his 2nd season in the NHL, but he has already shown moves that I have never seen anyone else do in a game. Will he be able to go down in history as one of the greats of the game? Do you think the can finish in the top 10 all-time scorers?

I think that he is fantastic. I have been lucky enough to be at some of his games in Pitsburgh (as well as seeing Lemieux play too) and it is very exciting. I think he is also a really good kid and I hope that he stays stable and down to earth.

I honestly think he is. I think IF he can continue to progress like he is, he can easily break many of the records they've made. He is an excellent player and at such a young age, if he can continue to improve with age and knowledge that comes in with his playing for many years he will be remarkable indeed. If he gets hurt or suddenly lets it all go to his head (Jagar) he could just as easily turn into someone who had talent but can't keep it running. Only time will tell!

I definitely feel that he has the potential of being the greatest player of all the time based on what I have seen so far from him. The only thing that could hold him back is if he suffers a lot of injuries. Otherwise, it will be difficult for any team to contain him. He is definitely a stud and will continue to do well. I am pretty sure that he will finish in the top time all time at the end of his career if he continues to play like he is now.
