Sidney Crosby vs. Mario Lemieux: Who's the Better All-Around Player?

The Boston Bruins won the Stanley Cup, there is still another week before the NHL Draft and even more time until free agency begins. This can be a boring time for hockey fans.

So, how should we pass the time? I vote for speculation on comparison between eras! For a Penguins fan, what better pot-stirrer than comparing Mario Lemieux and Sidney Crosby?

On the surface, it may seem silly. But consider the local media wondered aloud many times last season if Crosby's year would be considered along side of the greatest seasons in NHL history.

A couple of blows to the head in January rendered it a moot point, but Crosby has compiled a pretty good resume so far. Many critics complain that he is the NHL's poster boy. But how does he stack up against a player who had the waiting period for the Hall of Fame waived?

Is it a runaway for Le Magnifique or will Sid Vicious hold his own? There's only one way to find out, start the slideshow!
