Re: NHL thread. 2011-12 season.
You realize that was the first year he didn't have 45+ goals right? You realize that would have only been Crosby's second year with 40+ goals. Basing everything off stats is stupid as well, I never go by just stats alone, the guy way someone plays also has to be accounted for, that is one of many things that will always hold Ovie back as well since he plays me first instead of team first like Crosby does.
"Kobe first injured this shoulder in the preseason, according to sources. Has been playing w/ it all year. It just got worse last night"
After suffering the injury, he simply started shooting with his left hand rather than leaving the game.
