I think Crosby's return game from injury proved why he's the best in the world. I don't think Malkin is the leader Crosby is just yet either. Also, I find Crosby to be the better closer of the two. If the game's on the line, I want the puck on Crosby's stick. However, that isn't a slight at Malkin, I just think Crosby has more of a killer instinct when it comes to crunch time.
Speaking of Crosby, I don't think he's returning till playoff time tbh. Pens more than likely aren't gonna catch the Rangers so no point in rushing him back. Hell, I might actually be inclined to wait until round 2 of the playoffs to bring him back if the Pens wind up with the 6th seed and have to play the Panthers or Jets.
