Will Crosby live up to the hype

Postby Mozy » Sat Dec 18, 2004 10:45 am

In the NFL footbal sensation and prdigy to his brother Peyton Manning, Ely Manning. Ely has now started a number of games and has played by NFL standards horribly

Whereas in the NBA you had last year rookie sensation Lebron James who exploded out of the gates and hasnt looked back yet

After Gretzkys comments saying that Crosby is the next person who could possibly break his seemingly untouchable records how do you think that Crosby will respond to the pressure and expectation and perform as people has said he is capable of performing, as a superstar.

Crosby will be the next one, he has all the tools to be great. He will play a more dominate role with the World Juniors this year. He played very good last year with two goals and three assists, dam good for a sixteen year old.

He was way better off than Spezza was at sixteen and even this year as a seventeen year old.

i don't think he'll be gretzky calibre. he'll do well, that's for sure, but i don't think he'll dominate like gretzky did.

You can play in this tournament until your 19 years old. IIHF calls this tournament the under 20 yr old tournament.

I think that he has the proper skill set to be a star, but if he loses heart, then he shall fade to the wayside.

I think he had a rather storong performance last night notching 1 goal and 2 helpers, as we routed the Finns 6-0, Bergeron also had a strong night with 2 Goals and 1 helper
