Is this the season Crosby eclipses Jagr on your all-time list? I thought of it when NBC posted the stat about Sid becoming the fastest active player to reach 40 playoff goals, 9 fewer than Jagr.
Would would it take? Leading the way to another Stanley Cup? A Conn Smythe? Neither of which JJ has come close to...
Jagr's been consistently a PPG player in the playoffs, even as he's aged. Sid is at 1.3, and even if he drops off as he ages, he'll still likely outproduce Jagr in the playoffs. He's half way there right now.
Of course, all of this applies to Malkin as well, who is only slightly behind Sid's scoring pace. But he's got the Conn Smythe that Sid and Jagr don't.
All time Penguins list or all-time hockey history list? He's pretty clearly behind Jagr at this point. There's no one answer to this, Crosby is just well behind him at this point. It's a little closer if you just focus on Penguins accomplishments of course, but still it's a sizable gap from 1 to 2 and 2 to 3 in my opinion.
Let's come back to this after Crosby's season concludes. A Hart Trophy and a Conn Smythe would really narrow the gap quick...that's for sure.
For further context, there is a small profile I made for Jagr here.
To my knowledge, a profile doesn't exist yet for Crosby but it's something I (or anyone) could put together in short order.
