I'd say Crosby is one case where you do have to think about adding an enforcer, or at least a player or two who will largely fight his battles. Crosby should only have to focus on scoring. He doesn't play on the PK, he's not remotely physical. If he's having to grind it out against someone whose sole purpose in life is to make him absolutely miserable on every shift he takes, he's not going to be very effective. Even if he manages to produce, it's going to take a lot out of him.
"If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints, possibility never. And what wine is so sparkling, what so fragrant, what so intoxicating, as possibility!" - Kierkegaard
