Is it really a surprise that Sidney Crosby is back and already making an immediate impact throughout the NH? Pretty much every one that follows the game of hockey knows the importance of Sidney Crosby, not just in Pittsburgh but probably for the entire NHL.
After being out 10 months with two major concussions Sidney made his coveted return just over a week ago on November 21st and it surely didn’t look like he missed a beat; in fact it seemed like he was playing better than ever before. In under 16 minutes of play Sidney scored 2 goals and helped on 2 of them, giving him a 4 point night in his first game back.
Throughout the last 10 months people questioned his toughness and wondered if he’d ever get back into the game. There were even rumors spreading around that he was contemplating retirement, which we see now certainly were not true. He surely isn’t shying away from anybody and already 6 hits this season. If he were to keep up the pace he’s going on he would finish with 87 hits, a career high. Crosby is averaging 2 points a game and if he were to play every game the rest of the regular season he would finish with 116 points, which would be an incredible season. Can he average two points a game? Very unlikely, but I bet not many people had him scoring 4 points in under 16 minutes of play in his first game back either.
Like Lebron James is to basketball, Sidney Crosby is to hockey. Sidney Crosby is the face of the NHL and with him being gone for so long, many people started to lose interest in hockey, but with him back, it makes the game a must watch to see him play. As a Florida Panthers fan I don’t like seeing Crosby back on the ice solely on the fact that he makes his team a much better team, but when he’s not playing against our Florida Panthers one can’t help but marvel at the way he plays the game. Not to mention he clinched Team Canada the gold medal last season beating Team USA in a overtime thriller. Still cringing over that one.
Overall one has to just see Sidney Crosby as a guy that plays the game right, but you’ll definitely see me booing towards him when he takes the ice against the Florida Panthers.
