A man, alone.

Is there any doubt that Sidney Crosby is a little too good for this game? Seriously, the guy has now come back from multiple head injuries with some serious pizzazz and just keeps racking up the points. With a three point game against the Devils today – all assists, but he should have had a goal – he now has five points in two games since his latest return.


Perhaps the most impressive part of his return has been that he is really showing off what a physical menace he can be. You just can’t knock him off the puck, and if you make an attempt to close him down with multiple players his phenomenal vision allows him to pick out players most guys can’t actually see.

Exhibit A: This play that sets up an Evgeni Malkin goal is just insane. Watch.

The Penguins have now won 11 straight games and have only had their best player (Crosby) and number one defenseman (Kris Letang) for two of those wins. This team is very, very scary.

Are the Penguins the new “team to beat” even if they don’t win their division?

  1. Why does the media glorify everything Crosby does? He shook off some bad defense and made a pass to a wide open player. If anyone else makes that play it’s a none story.

    • Glorify everything he does? He’s the best player in the world by a mile. Most of the things he does can’t be done by other players. 98% of players in the situation above chip it behind the net, assuming they retain possession when they get knocked off their feet like he did.

      Sometimes it’s just better to acknowledge the spectacular.

      • Knocked off his feet? He goes down on one knee, Josefson is behind him the whole play and there is zero traffic between him and Malkin. I stand by my first statement.

        • I used to hate Sidney Crosby because he was a little whinner and a diver… but he has become a real man, and I must say, he IS the best player in the world, you have to acknowledge that…
          Like Chris Lund said, most player would just dump it behind the net.

        • CJ… wait. Cam Janssen, is that you????

  2. I admit I had partially forgot how it is when you can watch not “only” the best players in world playing, but also the best of the best. There is a difference. Big, big difference.

  3. I do believe the best player in the world was involved in the play. It’s not Crosby however…… It’s Malkin!
