Sidney Crosby has been considered the greatest thing since sliced bread for as long as we can remember.
Wayne Gretzky annointed the Cole Harbour, N.S. phenom as most likely to break the Great One's records.
Some say Crosby has lived up to the hype. Others argue he isnít even the best player on his own team -- let alone in the NHL.
Sun Media writers Randy Sportak and Dave Pollard debate whether Sid the Kid is overrated and overhyped, or is he The Man.
What is your opinion on Crosby? Is he the best player in the NHL right now? Have your say in our forum.
We need to remember that some of the new young goalies & D are also great players although they don't get the limelight or print.Young Guys like Mason are carrying their teams

Good point though about Crosby's rotating linemates who don't match up. Ovechkin plays much of his time with the almost as talented Semin and Green behind him, who also knows what to do with the puck.

I doubt he's watched Crosby play much this season.
More than any other guy in the league he's had to singlehandedly create offence (until Kunitz, Guerin arrived).
Hey Dave, how many points do you think Iginla or Ovechkin would have playing on a line with Pascal Dupuis and Max Talbot? Nowhere near as much as Crosby did.
