All-Star Game: Crosby is 'Soaking' in it.

Sidney Crosby is taking full advantage of his first All-Star opportunity, and is obviously excited. 10 years from now, he'll be so bored of the whole charade that he'll ask his body double to go in his place.

From Evan Grossman of NHL.com:

Sidney Crosby will get the red carpet treatment when he arrives in Dallas for his first NHL All-Star Game this week. Well, all of the players involved will get the Oscar-type treatment, but there’s no denying Crosby’s first appearance in the game is one of the major storylines of the week.

“I’m excited for sure,” Crosby said. “There’re a lot of guys there that I grew up watching and to be able to get the opportunity to meet them and play with them is definitely going to be enjoyable.”

If there’s one thing we’ve already learned about the 19-year- old playmaker it’s that when there’s hype surrounding his hockey games, Crosby generally lives up to it. The major buzz heading into Wednesday’s game (8 p.m. ET, Versus, CBC, RDS, NHL Radio) will be Crosby and Alex Ovechkin joining forces for the first time. The two will skate on the Eastern Conference’s starting forward line in the greatest pairing of young superstars this side of the Justice League of America.

“Playing with Ovechkin is going to be a lot of fun,” Crosby said. “To be able to play with a guy that shoots the puck like that, you want to get it to him. So I’ll be doing my best to try to feed him the puck and let him rip it.”
