Pittsburgh Penguins Olympic Report

Matt Canamucio of has a short report on the fortunes of the Pittsburgh Penguins at the Olympic break.
Article Link here.

Matt gives Sidney props as the MVP for the Penguins, not that he has to go out on a limb:
Crosby finished the pre-Olympic slate leading all NHL rookies with 37 assists and placing second in scoring with 65 points. He is already wearing an "A" on his sweater as an alternate captain, and has 13 power-play goals to his credit. It's obviously evident the kid is going to be a full-fledged superstar in a very short time. What will be interesting is how the Calder Trophy race goes between Crosby and Washington's Alexander Ovechkin, who has been just as phenomenal as a freshman.
Where Matt and I disagree is the choice of Zigmund Palffy as biggest disappointment.

It may have been a shock to see Palffy retire mid-season, he was performing very well for the Penguins with a point-a-game pace. If you want disappointment, look at Mario Lemieux who was constantly injured, out for life, and performing poorly. How about John Leclair, Sergei Gonchar, Dick Tarnstrom?
