N.B. Comments at Globe Sports have undergone a revision process, and will now go immediately onto the site — something that hopefully will stimulate conversation a bit better than the old system. You'll still need to register, but once you're in, you're in.
UPDATE Eric Duhatschek has an excellent yarn on Crosby for tomorrow's Globe and Mail that is up online now. There are also some great statistical comparisons in the paper edition for the best 125-game starts in NHL history, and not surprisingly, Crosby's right up there.
