Let's look at a large sample size. (I'm throwing out Barry Pederson because of so few GP)

Now, he's VERY close to Bossy, Orr, and Messier.. so once you throw in the GPG in different eras, he's easily 3rd.. behind Gretzky and Lemieux.
So 3rd most offensively productive post-season player. Yea, he can't play when it counts..
Okay. Thanks, that is the proof we all need. Sid is playing great. No problems. He played great against the Bruins last year too. He also played great against the Flyers and Habs in years past. Nothing to see here. Sidney Crosby is the single most clutch hockey player in world history. And beyond. He was fantastic last night, evoking comparisons to Orr, Messier and Bossy. Because, let's look at the large sample size. 2008 and 2009 is so relevant to this year afterall. Hell, the Pens should reach out to Bossy and Orr. Afterall they are on this list, that means they would be okay on the ice also.
I'm starting to wonder if you're intentionally talking past people to prove a point or if you're incapable of reading what people are writing. It's unclear.
Are you watching the games? Are you watching the games? Are you watching the games?
As I and others have written many times, no one is saying Crosby is playing well this postseason. I tried writing it in a large font previously but you didn't read it. I'll try putting it in a different color:no one is saying Crosby is playing well this postseason
. I'll even take a swing through Google Translate and put it in different languages in the hope that you can understand one of them:
Spanish: nadie dice Crosby está jugando bien en esta postemporada
French: personne ne dit Crosby joue bien présentes séries
German: niemand sagt Crosby ist gut spielen diese Nachsaison
Latin: dicentes: Non est bonum hoc postseason Crosby sit amet
Hungarian: Senki sem mondja, Crosby jól játszik ez utószezon
Russian: никто не говорит Кросби играет хорошо этот Матчи
Esperanto: neniu diras Crosby ludas bone ĉi postemporada
There is a difference between "not playing well this postseason" and "is a career choker". The former is true. The latter is false, and has been proven false. When people prove the latter false, you then conflate the argument to say people are now saying he's having a great postseason when no one is saying that. Please stop, as it is obnoxious and annoying for me to write something only to have someone not bother to read what I am writing.
