Yeah, Fleury was pretty impressive in goal. Stil not sure how they won, comeback seemed to come out of nowhere.
It was a bad call. It happens. Players aren't allowed to be in the crease while a goal goes in but he was pushed in so the goal should have stood up.

My friends and I have wrestled a lot with this idea. My heart says keep him and ride it out because he's such a hard worker and has such a fire for the game that he'd push himself to the brink of death to return at 100%. However, my brain says release him. The reason I say don't trade him is you'll never get anywhere near value. You're better off releasing him and using the cash he frees up to pursue a top free agent. Crosby also has a no trade clause and those can be tricky.

His deal is up after next season, along with players like Iginla, Perry, and Getzlaf. Call me crazy, but it might not be such a bad idea to lock up Neal and Malkin long term then let Crosby walk in favor of Perry or Getzlaf.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

STAY AWAY FROM MY DUCKS MYSTERY.

It's actually really sad to see Crosby now, even though I constantly troll about him, it will be depressing if he can never get healthy or even worse, never play again. The guy was great, but it's all for nothing now.

They called him the Lion of Lannister to his face...

...and whispered "Kingslayer" behind his back

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

Maybe I'm just a homer, but Crosby still goes down as one of the greats whether he plays another minute again or not imo.

The Penguins will fold as a franchise first before they trade Crosby. He's the most untouchable player in the league. Yes, he isn't playing right now and yes his career seems to be in jeopardy. But he's a guy that the Pens are willing to gamble on and they'll wait as long as they have to for him to get healthy again.

He's the NHL's poster boy. He sells the most merchandise out of anyone else. When he's healthy he's arguably the best player in the world. If he's not on the Pens 09 team, they don't win the Cup.

If Crosby is traded the entire Penguins management team should be fired and the franchise should relocate.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

Why the hell would the Pens release Crosby? would be the most idiotic thing in the world, and it will never happen.

They could put him on LTIR and shut him down for the season and use his cap space to go out and get a player at free agency if he doesn't come back this season.

He has been practicing and will return this season IMO. He has a soft-tissue injury of the neck which they think has been causing the symptoms and it can be treated.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

isnt Malkin the reason they won the cup in 09? I recall him having the better year. Honestly, I think Malkin has always been superior than Crosby, but he was already injured, now it seems the other way around.

If Gretzky can get traded, anyone can.

Crosby is the reason why Malkin flourished that year. He got all the top match ups. While he was being hounded like a pack of dogs when they see a steak by Zetterberg and Lidstrom, Malkin was able to coast through without having to be harassed.

The benefit of having an excellent 1-2 punch down the middle.

Yes, Malkin was a beast that season/playoffs.
