Sid and Geno Collect More Accolades

Good Friend of The Show and fellow Sid blogger Eric B. of The Sidney Crosby Spotlight sent in the info about Sid being the player most NHL players would build a team around:
365 NHL players were surveyed by Sports Illustrated asking who would be the first player they would pick to build a team around if they started a new team? An overwhelming majority picked Sidney Crosby (39%), followed by Alexander Ovechkin and Roberto Luongo (14% each). The results of the poll were published in the February 25, 2008 issue of Sports Illustrated and an expanded version can be found at [Fannation.com].
I know I'd want to build my around the Saint, but I may be a tad biased. :P

Who WOULDN'T want to build a team around this guy?!

A few Friends
(namely Joshua and Chani) have mentioned through comments that powerhouse Evgeni Malkin has been given the First Star of the Month title for February from NHL.com:
Malkin led all NHL scorers in February with 26 points (nine goals, 17 assists) in 14 games as the Penguins posted an 8-3-3 record. Malkin recorded points in 11 of 14 games, including nine multiple-point performances. He recorded goals in eight contests and notched a 10-game point streak from Feb. 2-21, tallying 24 points (8-16--24) in that span. Malkin leads the League in scoring with 88 points (37 goals, 51 assists) in 67 games.
It's absolutely fantastic to see Geno's hard work and tremendous effort get recognized.

Congrats, Geno!!! :)

There is a game tonight. Paul Ranger will be on the ice; Sidney will be in the seats.

This is what happened last time the Pens met the Lightning. (>_<)

Here's hoping Geno and the rest of the guys completely DEVASTATE the Lightning!!! (← Click that link - you'll laugh for days.) Thanks to everyone who sent in the links for today's post! :)

GO PENS!!!!!!!!!
