Better Without Crosby?

Since losing all-star forward Sidney Crosby the Pittsburgh Penguins have gone on a tear thanks to Russian sniper Evgeni Malkin.  After losing their captain to a high ankle sprain Jan 21 the Pens have gone 5-4-1, although they have lost their last two games in close contests. 

Malkin has been on fire with 7 goals and 12 assists in the 10 game stretch. 

 If they keep this up who needs Sid the Kid?  Maybe they do but they are no slouch without him.

  1. Serf Grewal Says:

    Evgeni Malkin is an elite player. He is already one of the best in the NHL. He has only now had an opportunity to prove it.

    I note that even with Evgeni’s help Sidney Crosby did not play as well as Evgeni is without Sidney Crosby. I can only imagine how good Evgeni would play if he could play centre and have Sidney helping him.

    I just hope that the NHL propaganda machine does not thwart Evgeni’s talents and potential in its constant and persistant efforts to build up Sidney.

    In short, Evgeni Malkin is and will be a better player than Sidney and he is and will be definitely a better asset for Pittsburg.

  2. It’s great to see how players can exceed and flourish when star, prime-time players go down with injuries. But to say The Penguins are better without Crosby? Come on…Sidney is an elite player and makes everyone around him better. With or without him, and the addition of Hossa, The Penguins are a much improved and dangerous team come playoffs! I am not sure too many teams will be able to keep up with them.
