Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

Crosby is not the reason he had a good year, that is ridiculous, if that was the case why is he having another remarkable year this year? Malkin is just a great playmaker, one of the best, as is Crosby, but I'd still say that Malkin is better even if it is harder to say after Crosby had that hell of a half season last year.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

Malkin is a beast of a player himself. Its not like Sid was the only reason they won in 2009.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

which could be as soon as next year. the fact he has a possibility of retiring and you could also get a shit load for him should make it at least an option for the Pens.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

if he gets injured again, which is very likely, then he'll be done or will be completely stupid and decide to stay even if it is destroyig his health. I thought the same thing about Manning in the beginning of the season man, but sometimes you gotta let go.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

Where did I say Crosby was the sole reason the Pens won the cup?? I said if he wasn't on that team, they don't win, and that's true.

Think about it. The Pens had Crosby-Malkin as their top 2 centers, centering the 1A/1B line respectively. They faced the Red Wings. Lidstrom, Zetterberg, and Datsyuk were assigned to be on Crosby every time he stepped onto the ice. Like his shadow.

When you have 3 of the best defensive players in the league on your back for 60 minutes, 7 games, you are going to be rendered ineffective no matter how good you are.

It is because of this why Malkin flourished because the attention was always on Crosby.

This video is from 08, but it's a pretty good representation of what Sid had to deal with on a shift to shift basis.

Anyway, looking forward to this Leafs/Penguins game right away. Last night's game was intense.

I'm just saying, if the best player in the world can be traded more than once, anyone can really. For whatever circumstances. Other guys can be mentioned as well (Shaq).
