Sidney Crosby Linkage of the Day

John Kresier of gives a nice written massage to Sidney Crosby in his latest column/propaganda piece.

Suffice it to say that this was not the rookie season Sidney Crosby dreamed of when he was drafted by the Pittsburgh Penguins last summer.
Well, duh! He was drafted by a crappy team, did he expect a Stanley Cup? You have to wonder how players drafted by the Chicago Blackhawks must feel.

The one good note for Crosby this season is that he won his head-to-head "series" with Washington rookie star Alexander Ovechkin. Despite Wednesday's 6-3 loss in Washington, the Penguins and Crosby beat Ovechkin and the Capitals in three of their four meetings this season.
Yeah, but we know Ovechkin is likely to walk away with the Calder. I'm sure Crosby would rather have that.

Meanwhile, Sports Illustrated ( has a piece about Sidney Crosby growing up fast. Off the ice, Sidney has never really been all that immature. On the ice? He needs to stop whining so much and take his knocks like a Steve Yzerman.
