There was a feature on him by TSN before tonight's game between the Flames and Blackhawks. They showed footage of Crosby's goals. One goal he scored, he just skated around the net left untouched into the high slot and scored. They also showed a goal where he was coming in from the left wing on a virtual break and he just drag the puck from left to right and slid the puck in. They showed the goals scored in the Cataractes game as well. They had the Rimouski Oceanic coach talk about him, the radio broadcaster, and linemate Danny Stewart. They showed some good stuff, Crosby believes his speed is his main attribute. After the feature, Blair Mackensey did a short interview with James Duthie. Duthie asked about whether if Crosby was a lock, it was funny to see Mackensey respond, he paused abit and then he was like no player is really a lock, he is 16 year's of age and he will be playing against 18 and 19 year old's, who are tops in the world. Mackensey went on to say that Crosby will have extra eyes watching him, since he has gotten their attention and that he has gotten himself an invite. Also, Mackensey talked about how when he watches hockey games, it's pretty much critical and emotionless, but with Crosby, he will cheer and stuff. Basically Crosby gets his "mojo" going. That was about it, I probably missed a few things here and there, but yeah. Maybe someone else who caught it can elaborate on whatever I missed.
I'm looking forward to see Crosby a key in role in 2004. Not in the 1st tougth.. But just like Spezza was in his second and third WJC. 2 or 3 duties plus some PP time...
I can't wait to see in him in this World...
